At Crowfoot Village Family Practice we offer the following vaccinations by appointment with one of our Registered Nurses:
Adults over 50, especially those over 65, are at increased risk for developing pneumococcal infections and are more likely to develop invasive disease. CVFP is now offering Prevnar® 13 which is a pneumococcal vaccine that helps protect against 13 types of Streptococcus pneumoniae bacteria.
What is pneumococcal disease? Pneumococcal disease is an infection caused by a type of bacteria called Streptococcus pneumoniae. The most common types of infections include ear infections, sinus infections and lung infections (pneumonia). Approximately 1/3 of all pneumonias outside of the hospital are caused by pneumococcal disease. Read more
If you have had chickenpox, you may develop shingles. ZOSTAVAX™ is the only vaccine indicated to help prevent shingles in individuals 50 years of age or older.
