PREVENT SHINGLES

Posted: 04.7.2016

Shingles is a very painful blistering skin condition caused by the same virus that causes chickenpox. Early symptoms may include numbness, burning, itching and tingling. This is followed by a red rash that usually starts as a single line of small bumps, when then blister. Shingles usually affects adults older than 50. There is a shingles vaccine available that may help prevent the disease or reduce the severity if you do get it. Our pharmacist can administer the vaccine in the store with no prescription or appointment needed.
