Immunizations

At Morro Bay drug and gift we provide a wide range of immunization services available on a daily basis.

IMG_8530Vaccinations, or immunizations, work by stimulating the immune system, the natural disease fighting system of the body.  Immunizations prepare the immune system to ward off a disease.  You may walk in and obtain an immunization at any time that our pharmacy is open.

Common immunizations offered Include:

  • Seasonal flu Vaccine
  • Pneumococcal Vaccine (Pneumonia immunization)
  • T/dap (DPT) Vaccine
  • Zostavax  vaccine ( “Shingles shot”)
  • HPV Vaccine
  • Hepatitis A and B vaccine
  • Tetanus vaccine
  • Rabies vaccine
  • Various travel vaccines

Ask our clinical pharmacists about the availability and frequency as well as indications for any of the vaccines mentioned.  We would also be happy to check to see if your vaccine is covered by your insurance policy.

(As a side-note, Medicare part B covers pneumonia vaccine and flu vaccine at no cost to the patient.)
We also routinely notify your family physician when you receive vaccines so they can maintain it in your medical record.
