Parkway Drugs at 350 Leland Ave. in North Utica offers Flu, Pneumonia, and Shingles shots every Monday from 9am-5pm.
The CDC recommends pneumonia shots for all children younger than 2 years old, all adults 65 years or older, and people 2 through 64 years old with certain medical conditions.
Flu shots cause antibodies to develop in the body about two weeks after vaccination. These antibodies provide protection against the influenza virus. The vaccine protects against the viruses that research indicates will be most common during the upcoming season.
About 1 in 3 people in the US will get shingles in their lifetime. It can happen at any age, but you’re more likely to have it as you get older. That’s why doctors recommend a shingles vaccine for most people over 50.
