This year more than ever it is important to get your annual flu shot. The flu shot is still the best way to protect yourself and those around you from the flu. Not only will it protect you, but it will help reduce trips to the doctor’s office and hospitals, which will be extremely important this year to help conserve valuable healthcare resources.
Timing of your flu shot does matter! It is important to get the flu shot at the right time to make sure it lasts the entire season. Just recently the CDC reiterated that it is important to get a flu shot by the end of October and receiving one prior to September may be too early, as vaccine immunity may wane before the season is over.
When you choose Medicap Pharmacy as your flu shot destination, you are helping those in need right in your own community. Through the partnership with the Food Bank of Iowa, Medicap Pharmacy will donate 12 meals to the local food pantry for every flu shot given at participating Medicap Pharmacy locations from September 23 through November 23, 2020. Do good for you and others – choose Medicap Pharmacy as your flu shot provider. Visit www.IowaFluShots.com for more information.
Medicap Pharmacy is taking extra precautions this year to help protect our patients and staff. We are offering a contactless immunization form option this year. The patient will be emailed a secure link and will complete the online form. Not only will this new option limit the touching of paper, but it also will limit the amount of time spent in the pharmacy. If a patient would rather come into the pharmacy to fill out paperwork, rest assured we will be sanitizing clipboards, pens, chairs, and all areas of the pharmacy to help protect the patients. Social distancing measures will be in place throughout the pharmacy and our staff will be wearing masks and we request that you do too. If a patient doesn’t feel comfortable coming into the pharmacy, no problem! For your convenience, our staff can also offer curbside flu vaccinations.
Flu shots are available during regular business hours and no appointment or prescription is necessary, walk-ins are welcome. Medicap Pharmacy can provide flu shots to patients ages 6 months and up with most insurances.
Come to Medicap Pharmacy where you have a knowledgeable pharmacist giving you your flu vaccine, protecting your health, and helping you pick the right vaccine for you. This year, for those patients 65 and older, there is a new vaccine formulation on the market. At Medicap Pharmacy, we believe in providing our patients with the most protection and therefore we will only have the four-strain available this year, as it protects you from 4 different strains of the flu.
