Event Details
  • Description

    Worcester Senior Center and Senior Companion In-Service are joining together to offer: Two shots, One Illness: Pneumonia

    Wed. Feb 7 1-2pm

    Often times at the pharmacy we encounter the question of why two shots and why so close apart? Does the first one not work? They both are pneumonia shots right? Although the indication may be the same, the vaccines (Prevnar13 and Pneumovax23) are vastly different cover a variety of strains of streptococcus pneumoniae bacteria. Come learn about these two important vaccines, their indications, differences and if you are missing this vital piece of senior healthcare. The pharmacist will also administer the vaccines/answer questions.Presented by: Ibrahim Alhomoud, PharmD Candidate 2018: MCPHS University-Worcester & Anthony Desmond, PharmD, RPH: Shaws-Osco Pharmacy.
