Every year, tens of thousands of Americans get sick from diseases that could be prevented by vaccines - some people are hospitalized, some even die. Immunization is our best protection against these diseases. Vaccines are recommended for children, teens, and adults based on different factors like age, health conditions, lifestyle, jobs, and travel. CDC and other medical experts update vaccine recommendations every year based on the latest research and science. Vaccination is a critical step in protecting those that are most vulnerable to illness - infants and young children, the elderly, and those with chronic conditions and weakened immune systems.
At Goldsmith MediCenter Pharmacy, we believe in the daily commitment to the health of you and your family. One way we help with this is by offering different vaccinations and immunizations. All of our pharmacists are certified to perform the following vaccinations:
- Influenza (Trivalent, Quadrivalent and High Dose)
- Hepatitis A
- Hepatitis B
- Combination vaccinations such as Tdap

There are some restrictions to how often an individual can get a vaccination. Some vaccinations are encouraged to be given annually, where others are given once in an individual’s lifetime. There are also age requirements due to Missouri Board of Pharmacy law on all vaccinations. Contact us today if you have questions regarding immunizations.
