Vaccinations Available in Our Pharmacy Department

Are you over 50? Protect yourself from Shingles and get vaccinated today! King Kullen offers Zostavax  at all King Kullen locations. No prescription is necessary. See store for information.

Shingles causes a blistering rash that is painful. The rash usually affects only a small section of your body and can last up to 30 days. Pain will lessen as the rash heals.

Zostavax is a vaccine that is used for adults 50 and older to prevent Shingles. The same virus that causes chickenpox also causes Shingles. If you have had the chicken pox before, there is a higher chance that you will get shingles as an adult. Zostavax will help prevent shingles by aiding your immune system to keep the shingles virus in check.

The vaccine is approved for adults over the age of 50 and is covered by Medicare – Part D.  Consult your doctor to see if you are a candidate for the Zostavax vaccine.

King Kullen also provides immunizations for the flu, shingles, TDAP, meningitis and pneumonia.  For more information, visit any one of our ten pharmacy locations and speak with our pharmacists.

You can find King Kullen pharmacies available in our Bethpage, Center Moriches, Cutchogue, Huntington, Levittown, Manorville, Middle Island, Mount Sinai, North Patchogue, Syosset.
