Hepatitis A vaccine
Hepatitis A is caused by a very contagious virus that causes a short-term liver infection that prevents your liver from working as it should. You can get it from contaminated food or water or close contact with someone who has the disease. It causes symptoms such as yellow skin and eyes (jaundice), nausea and vomiting, stomach pain, fever, diarrhea, joint pain, and tiredness.
The best way to prevent hepatitis A is to get vaccinated. The hepatitis A vaccine is recommended for:
- Children and adolescents
- People at greater risk of getting the disease, such as international travelers or those who inject drugs
- People with liver disease or HIV, which puts them at risk for severe complications from hepatitis A
You can get a hepatitis A vaccine at UHealth Clinic at Walgreens whenever it’s convenient for you. The vaccine is given as two shots, six months apart. We make coming in for vaccinations easy, offering same-day and evening appointments. Our providers offer expert care and attention, making sure all your questions are answered.
Hepatitis B vaccine
Hepatitis B is an infectious disease from a virus that affects your liver. It causes a liver infection that lasts for a few weeks, but it can become an ongoing condition that may require hospitalization and lifelong treatment. It's spread through contact with an infected person's body fluid, such as blood or semen.
Hepatitis B causes symptoms like yellow skin and eyes (jaundice), nausea and vomiting, stomach pain, fever, diarrhea, joint pain, and tiredness. Some people with hepatitis B don't have any symptoms.
The hepatitis B vaccine, which is given in a few doses, is recommended for:
- All babies and children and teens who haven't received the vaccine already
- People at risk for hepatitis B through sexual activity
- Anyone at risk for getting infected through blood, such as family members of someone with the disease or health workers who come into contact with body fluids
- Those with HIV or liver disease
You can get a hepatitis B vaccine at UHealth Clinic at Walgreens at one of our many South Florida locations. We offer same-day and evening appointments to make vaccinations convenient and worry-free. We’re here to answer all your questions and make sure you get the personal attention and guidance you need to stay healthy.
Human papillomavirus vaccine (HPV 9)
HPV is a common virus that can cause cancer later in life in men and women, including cancer of the cervix, vagina, vulva, penis, anus, and throat. Only cervical cancer can be found early.
The HPV virus is spread during oral, vaginal, and anal sex. Nearly everyone who has sex will be exposed to the HPV virus. The best way to prevent HPV-related cancers is to get the HPV vaccine.
You can prevent these cancers by getting the HPV vaccine. All children between 11 and 12 should have the vaccine – though children can get the vaccine as early as age 9. The vaccine is given in two doses, six months to a year apart. If your child hasn't been vaccinated before they're 15, they need three doses of the HPV vaccine over six months. HPV vaccines are given to children to make sure they're protected long before they're exposed to the virus.
You can get the HPV vaccine at UHealth Clinic at Walgreens. We make it easy, with same-day and evening appointments at any of our convenient South Florida locations.
Measles, mumps, and rubella (MMR) vaccine
Measles, mumps, and rubella are very contagious diseases caused by a virus. It's spread from person to person through the air. Children should get vaccinated when they turn 1 and have a second dose of the MMR vaccine between 4 and 6. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommendations for older people include:
- College-age students who don't have immunization records to show they've been vaccinated need two doses of the vaccine, at least 28 days apart.
- Adults without proof of immunization should get at least a single dose of the MMR vaccine. Some adults at greater risk may need two doses, such as college students, healthcare workers, and international travelers.
You can get MMR vaccines at UHealth Clinic at Walgreens. Our providers know about the latest recommendations for MMR vaccines and health and safety guidelines. You get trusted advice and guidance to keep your entire family's immunizations up to date. You can get the MMR vaccine conveniently at one of our locations across South Florida – with same-day and evening appointments.
Meningitis (meningococcal) vaccines
Meningitis is a disease that causes swelling in the brain and spinal cord. It’s caused by a few different types of bacteria – including bacteria that cause meningitis B, a less common form of the disease. The bacteria can spread between people through saliva and spit, such as through coughing or spitting.
Two vaccines protect against meningitis:
- Meningococcal conjugate (MenACWY) vaccine
- Serogroup B meningococcal (MenB) vaccine
You can get both types of meningitis vaccines at UHealth Clinic at Walgreens and expert advice to find out what’s right for you and your family. With same-day appointments at locations across South Florida, we make it easy to get the vaccines you need.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends:
- Babies and children 2 months to 10 years old should have the MenACY vaccine if they have certain health conditions or in an environment where meningitis is common.
- Preteens 11 to 12 should have the MenACWY vaccine and a booster shot when they're 16. They may also have a MenB vaccine between 16 and 18 years old.
- Adults should have one or both meningitis vaccinations if they have certain health problems or are at greater risk of getting meningitis due to their work or travel.
Providers at UHealth Clinic at Walgreens are experts in immunizations and can answer all your questions about meningitis vaccines. You get trusted guidance to ensure your – and your family's – health and safety.
Pneumonia (pneumococcal) vaccine
Pneumococcal pneumonia is a lung disease caused by bacteria that infects your airways and lungs. It spreads from one person to another through close contact. The bacteria can cause ear and sinus infections and more severe health problems like pneumonia and blood infections.
Some people – including young children under 2 and adults 65 and older – have a greater risk of severe bacterial infections, and the pneumococcal vaccine can help protect them. It’s also recommended for people with certain health conditions, such as immune system disorders, blood diseases, diabetes, kidney disease, heart disease, or lung disease.
You can get the pneumococcal vaccine at UHealth Clinic at Walgreens. Our providers can tell you about the types of pneumococcal vaccines available and which vaccine is right for you or your child. Your provider will learn about your health history and help you make an informed decision. We offer same-day appointments at locations across South Florida, so it’s easy to get your vaccine.
Shingles is a painful rash caused by the same virus that causes chickenpox. After you've had chickenpox, the virus stays in your body without causing any symptoms, but it can reactivate many years later as shingles. It causes blisters that scab over after about a week and then clear up after a few weeks.
Shingles can develop anywhere on your body, but it usually affects one side of your torso. Sometimes it can form around one eye or on one side of your face or neck. For some people, shingles can cause nerve pain called postherpetic neuralgia that lasts long after the rash goes away. It can also cause eye damage that can lead to vision problems.
About 1 in 3 people Americans get shingles in their lifetime. It can affect people of all ages, but your risk of shingles and its complications increases as you get older. That’s why doctors recommend people 50 and older get the Shingrix vaccine to prevent shingles. The vaccine is given in two doses, two to six months apart.
You can get the Shingrix vaccine at UHealth Clinic at Walgreens at one of our many South Florida locations. We make vaccination easy and worry-free, with same-day appointments and experienced providers you can trust.
Tetanus, diphtheria, and pertussis (Tdap) vaccine
The Tdap vaccine can prevent you from getting tetanus, diphtheria, and pertussis (also called whooping cough). Bacteria causes all three diseases. Diphtheria and pertussis spread through the air when someone coughs or sneezes, and you get tetanus when bacteria gets into an open wound.
- Tetanus, also called lockjaw, affects your nervous system and muscles. It’s life-threatening and causes muscle stiffening and spasms, making it difficult to swallow or breathe.
- Diphtheria can cause breathing problems, heart failure, paralysis, and death.
- Pertussis causes uncontrollable coughing that makes it difficult to breathe, eat, or drink. It can be life-threatening in infants and young children, causing convulsions, pneumonia, and brain damage.
The Tdap vaccine is for people 7 and older. Children should receive it at age 11 or 12, and women should get the vaccine with every pregnancy to prevent pertussis in newborns. Adults who've never received the Tdap vaccine should have it. Also, all adults need a booster shot every 10 years – or earlier if you have a wound that puts you at risk for tetanus.
You can get Tdap vaccines at UHealth Clinic at Walgreens for the entire family at a location nearby. Our providers know when children, teens, and adults need Tdap vaccines and are experts at keeping you healthy. We learn about your health history to ensure your safety and well-being.
