Immunizations are an important preventive measure against many debilitating or deadly diseases — and for some at-risk groups, they're absolutely essential. Your Giant Eagle pharmacist can help you decide if immunization is right for you.
Consider an Influenza Immunization If:
- You want to reduce the risk of becoming ill with influenza or of transmitting influenza to others.
- You are 50 years old or older.
- You are or will be pregnant during influenza season.
- You have chronic pulmonary (including asthma), cardiovascular (except hypertension), renal, hepatic, hematological or metabolic disorders (including diabetes mellitus).
- You have immunosuppression (including immunosuppression caused by medications or by human immunodeficiency virus).
- You are a resident of a nursing home or other long-term care facility.
Consider a Pneumonia Vaccine If:
- You are 65 years old or older.
- You have a serious long-term health problem such as heart disease, sickle cell disease, alcoholism, leaks of cerebrospinal fluid, lung disease (not including asthma), diabetes or liver cirrhosis.
- You have a low resistance to infection due to Hodgkin's disease, multiple myeloma, cancer treatment with x-rays or drugs, treatment with long-term steroids, bone marrow or organ transplant, kidney failure, HIV/AIDS, lymphoma, leukemia, or other cancers, nephrotic syndrome, damaged spleen or no spleen.
- You are an Alaskan Native or from certain Native American populations.
Consider a Shingles Vaccine If:
- You are 50 years old or older.**
- You are infected with or are carrying the varicella-zoster (chickenpox) virus.
- Your immune system has been weakened by HIV infection, cancer, cancer drugs, radiation treatments or organ transplant.
Diabetes and Immunizations:
According to the CDC, people with diabetes are 6 times more likely to be hospitalized with flu complications. If you have diabetes, take measures to protect yourself. Make an annual flu shot a part of your prevention routine.
