Smithland Pharmacy's immunization-trained staff conveniently administer a wide range of recommended vaccines for you and your family. Children 9 years of age and older and adults are eligible for vaccine administration at Smithland Pharmacy.
Many adults do not get recommended vaccines, including the flu shot, for a number of reasons including a lack of information, misinformation, and missed regular doctor visits. Particularly disturbing is the fact that more than half of adults less than 65 years of age with serious health conditions frequently miss their flu shot. The CDC recommends all persons older than 6 months without contraindications receive annual vaccinations for seasonal influenza protection. We can offer you and your family a convenient and cost-effective means of obtaining protection from the flu.
