This year, get your flu shot at our pharmacy. It’s your best defense against the flu. Simply visit our Pharmacy and have your flu shot administered by one of our certified Pharmacists. Please bring your provincial health card.

You may also consider getting vaccinated for Shingles. Shingles is an infection caused by the same virus that causes chicken pox. This virus is called the varicella zoster virus. Even after chicken pox blisters heal, the varicella zoster virus stays in the body for life. If it becomes active again, it causes shingles. Two out of every 10 people will get shingles in their lifetime.  This risk increases as you get older, especially over 50 years of age.  Shingles is a painful, blistering rash that can last several weeks and cause skin infections and scarring. It is very important for people with a weak immune system to see their healthcare providers right away if they think they have shingles.

Talk to your doctor or healthcare professional today to find out how to help protect yourself against shingles.

Medication Review

Our Medication Review Program offers patients and their families a peace of mind when it comes to the medication they are taking. As a pharmacy advocating for patients and clients at home, “Polypharmacy” is something that we want to avoid. Polypharmacy is an increase in number of prescribed medications that could potentially lead to increase in adverse events. There is No Magic Number to define Polypharmacy but this is something that we can discuss with you in person at no cost. This service is provided in group setting or in our pharmacy.
