Did you know that pharmacists are able to provide Albertans with certain vaccines for free?
All Albertans are eligible for a free influenza vaccine each year starting at the end of October. Our pharmacists are able to inject patients aged five and up at the pharmacy.
Diphtheria-Tetanus-Acellular Pertussis combined vaccine:
Pregnant Albertans are eligible at any time at or after 13 weeks of pregnancy for Adacel, a combined vaccine for diphtheria, tetanus and pertussis. The injection should ideally be administered between 27-32 weeks of pregnancy to provide the most antibodies to the unborn child. A prescription is required; however, our prescribing pharmacists are able to provide this prescription to patients.
Albertans aged 65 years and older are eligible to receive the Pneumovax vaccine at no charge. A prescription is required; however, our prescribing pharmacists are able to provide this prescription to patients.
Our pharmacists are able to review your immunization history to ensure you have the most up to date vaccinations. They are able to recommend, prescribe and administer vaccines, however, many vaccines are available for free through public health, such as the MMR (measles/mumps/rubella) and Hepatitis B vaccines.
