This meeting will review the class schedules as well as go over the fingerprinting documentation needed to become a volunteer.

Vaccines for Older Adults

Vaccines are especially important for older adults. Join us as Capital Health Pharmacy presents Vaccines for Older Adults, come learn about the various vaccines that are recommended for older adults, including Flu, Pneumonia, Tdap (Tetanus/Diphtheria/Pertussis), Shingles etc. Getting vaccinated helps keep not only you healthy but your family, friends and community!
