Flu Vaccines
The CDC now recommends flu shots be administered to eligible patients throughout the year. Many Advanced Care locations offer vaccine administration as a walk-in service or by appointment. Our staff can schedule immunization clinics that vary by time and day for employers, large groups and organizations.

Shingles Vaccine
Shingles is a viral infection of the nerve roots caused by the same virus (herpes zoster) that causes chickenpox. It often results in severe pain and a skin rash. The Varicella zoster virus that causes chickenpox remains dormant in the body for life. The shingles vaccine prevents reactivation of the virus (sometimes brought on by stress), and is recommended for everyone over the age of 60 who had chickenpox as a child. Medicare Part D and supplemental insurance plans usually cover the cost of the shingles vaccine. The vaccine is administered as a one-time shot in the arm, and is available at the following Advanced Care locations:

Changes for 2011 [Footnotes (Figures 1 and 2)*]
  • The influenza vaccination footnote (#1) is revised and shortened to reflect a recommendation for vaccination of all persons aged 6 months and older, including all adults. The high-dose influenza vaccine (Fluzone), licensed in 2010 for adults aged 65 years and older, is mentioned as an option for this age group.
  • The Td/Tdap vaccination footnote (#2) has language added to indicate that persons aged 65 years and older who have close contact with an infant aged less than 12 months should get vaccinated with Tdap; the additional language notes that all persons aged 65 years and older may get vaccinated with Tdap. Also added is the recommendation to administer Tdap regardless of interval since the most recent Td-containing vaccine.
  • The HPV vaccination footnote (#4) has language added to the introductory sentences to indicate that either quadrivalent vaccine or bivalent vaccine is recommended for females.
  • The MMR vaccination footnote (#6) has been revised mainly by consolidating common language that previously had been part of each of the three vaccine component sections into one introductory statement.
  • The revaccination with PPSV footnote (#8) clarifies that one-time revaccination after 5 years only applies to persons with indicated chronic conditions who are aged 19 through 64 years.
  • The meningococcal vaccination footnote (#9) has language added to indicate that a 2-dose series of meningococcal conjugate vaccine is recommended for adults with anatomic or functional asplenia, or persistent complement component deficiencies, as well adults with human immunodeficiency (HIV) virus infection who are vaccinated. Language has been added that a single dose of meningococcal vaccine is still recommended for those with other indications. Also, language has been added to clarify that quadrivalent meningococcal conjugate vaccine (MCV4) is a quadrivalent vaccine.
  • The language for the selected conditions for the Hib footnote (#12) has been shortened to clarify which persons at high risk may receive 1 dose of Hib vaccine.
The recommended adult immunization schedule has been approved by the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices, the American Academy of Family Physicians, the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, and the American College of Physicians.
