The Importance of Vaccinations

The Importance of Vaccinations

SAVANNAH, Ga. (WTOC) -Richmond Hill Pharmacy recognizes the importance of being immunized. A critical step to staying healthy and preventing the spread of illness is getting appropriate vaccinations. Especially as you age, your immune system weakens, and it becomes more difficult to fight off infections.

For this reason, it is recommended that adults 65 and older get regular vaccinations for diseases like influenza (flu), pneumonia, shingles, and that expectant moms and grandparents get vaccinated for whooping cough. These viruses can cause complications that lead to long-term illness, hospitalization, or even death.

At Richmond Hill Pharmacy, we make getting a vaccination as easy and stress free as possible. There is no need to make an appointment; just drop in during our normal business offers. Unlike at your doctor’s office, you may not experience a lengthy wait time, and since an appointment is not necessary, the vaccination visit is convenient for you.

If you have questions or concerns regarding the specifics of vaccinations, the staff at Richmond Hill Pharmacy and our other locations are available to assist you.
