What is cocooning?
Babies younger that 6 months old are more likely to develop certain infectious diseases than older children. Cocooning is a way to protect babies from catching diseases from the people around them - people like thier parents, siblings, grandparents, friends, child-care providers, babysitters, and healthcare providers. Once these people are vaccinated, they are less likely to spread these contagious diseases to the baby. They surround the baby with a cocoon of protection against disease until he or she is old enough to get all the doses of vaccine needed to be fully protected.
Why is cocooning important?
Babies less than 6 months old are too young to have received all the doses of vaccine that are needed to protect them from whooping cough (pertussis), flu (influenza), and other dangerous diseases. To be fully protected, babies need to get all the vaccine doses in a series - not just the first dose.
Unvaccinated adults and family members, including parents, are often the ones who unknowingly spread dangerous diseases to babies.
Currently, towns and cites across the nation have had whooping cough outbreaks. Influenza outbreaks happen every year.
How Can we protect babies?
Everyone has the opportunity to protect babies by getting vaccinated themselves. Cocooning is an easy and effective way that people can work together to prevent the spread of whooping cough and flu to babies.
How can we protect babies against whooping cough?
*All children should be vaccinated on schedule with DTaP (the childhood whooping cough vaccine).
*All teenagers and adults need a one-time dose of Tdap vaccine (the teen and adult whooping cough vaccine).
*Pregnant women should receive a Tdap vaccination in each pregnancy, preferably during the 3rd trimester. This will protect the pregnant woman as well as her baby!
How can we protect babies against flu?
Everyone age 6 months and older needs to receive flu vaccine every year.

Dry Mouth, (Xerostomia), is a common side effect of medications. Once considered an inevitable part of aging, dry mouth is now commonly associated
with certain medications and
autoimmune conditions. Both of these can reduce salivary production or alter its composition, but experts agree that the primary cause of dry mouth is the use of medications. (* from the American Dental Association).MedActive

Our vaccination program is becoming very successful. We have been giving the flu vaccine for three years and this past flu season the number of customers receiving the influenza vaccination at our store increased by 50 percent from the previous year. Each week we have customers coming in for the Shingles vaccinations and we would like to expand our services to include all recommended vaccinations for adults.
"The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has identified vaccination as one of the 10 great public health achievements of the 20th century
in the United States."
The Shingles (Zostavax) vaccination is covered under Medicare D plans, in varying copay stuctures. It is recommended for every adult over the age of 50 by the FDA and 60 and over by the CDC. This is a lifetime vaccination, which means you only receive it once. "The same virus that causes chickenpox also causes Shingles. And if you've ever had chickenpox, like 98% of adults in the United States, this virus never leaves your body. Instead, it stays in your nervous system. With each passing decade, there's a greater chance the virus will emerge as Shingles - a blistering rash that may bring deep, penetrating pain. Unlike chickenpox, Shingles is painful and can lead to long-term nerve pain. For more info visit shinglesinfo.com "

We would like to increase the number of Pneumonia vaccines we administer at Granby Pharmacy. This vaccine is covered by Medicare B, which we can bill for and is recommended for people 65 years of age or older, or anyone 2-64 years of age with any of the following health problems, chronic heart disease, chronic lung disease, diabetes or immuno-compromised. (We can only administer any vaccines to adults 18 years or older.) A Pneumococcal infection can cause different types of disease, including
Pneumonia: Infection in the lungs
Meningitis: Infection in the lining of the brain
Bacteremia: Infection in the blood
"Pneumococcal disease is caused by common bacteria. Many adults carry these bacteria in their nose and throat. In some cases, they may multiply and travel throughout your body, causing infections that can make you very sick." (Merck & Co., Inc)
Talk to your physician or pharmacist about more information on these vaccines. Pharmacists are now approved to administer all adult vaccinations. So please give us a call to find out more about other vaccines.
