2012/2013 Influenza Vaccination Program – Tuesdays & Thursdays – 2:00pm to 4:30pm
As we have in the past years, we are again participating in Alberta Health’s Seasonal Influenza Vaccination Program. You can receive your influenza vaccination. This vaccination is NO CHARGE to all Albertans and is administered in our pharmacy Tuesdays and Thursdays between 2pm and 4:30pm. No appointment is necessary for this vaccination but you must have a valid Alberta Personal Healthcare Card.
NO APPOINTMENTS NECESSARY
The Influenza Vaccination program for the 2012/2013 flu season is now in full swing. Again this is the Alberta Health sponsored influenza vaccination program. That means there is no charge for the vaccination but since it is for Alberta citizens, you must present a valid Personal Health Card to qualify for the program.
Please note that we are not able to provide flu vaccinations for children under the age of 9 years old. For these children please attend one of the scheduled clinics offered by Alberta Health Services. You can find a current schedule, by clicking on the following link: South Zone Flu Clinics 2012 (This is a pdf file and requires that you have Adobe Acrobat Reader)
All Other Vaccinations Appointments Tuesday & Thursday: 2:00pm to 4:30pm
Please call (403) 320-6500 to arrange an appointment to receive your vaccination. Most vaccinations require some preparation time and may require you to remain at the pharmacy for 20min for observation. Please ask when making the appointment. Vaccinations include but are not limited to TwinRx, HaviRx, Zostavax, Gardasil and more. (Please note the above listed immunizations require a prescription from your doctor.)
Note: We are certified to provide medications by injection such as Vitamin B12, Eprex, Aranesp, Innohep, and many more.
Just looking for these injectable medications to be pre-filled into a syringe with needle? We can accommodate this request as well. Talk to our pharmacy staff about “pre-fill” services. This does require some prior arrangement but can be set up to continue for as long as you require the service. A few days, a week, a month or many months – not a problem. We can set up the service to be re-occurring automatically for as long as you require.
There is a $15 fee for this service. A receipt will be issued for claiming on your 2012 income tax return or for reimbursement from your private insurance plans
Many insurance plans will include coverage for services which can include those services provided by a pharmacist. Our pharmacists are certified to provide this service as required by the Alberta College of Pharmacists. In addition, the payment of pharmacist professional services are recognized by the Canada Revenue Agency to be included as an allowed medical expense. For clarification please consult your tax consultant or the Canada Revenue Agency directly.
In the meantime, hang on to those receipts from the pharmacy.
At Stafford Pharmacy our pharmacists are trained and certified to administer immunizations as well as many other medications by injection. This includes intradermal, subcutaneous and intramuscular injections.
