Protect Your Child at Any Age

Ages 2 – 6

Between the ages of 2 and 6 years, it is important that your child receives the recommended doses of their routine vaccines to keep them protected. These doses they received earlier in life help them maintain the best protection against vaccine-preventable diseases.

If your child missed a vaccine, now is a good time to make sure they are protected from DTaP, HepA, and Pneumonia.

As kids get older, they are still at risk for certain diseases. Before heading back to school, three vaccines are recommended for 11-12 year olds—HPV, Tdap, and meningococcal conjugate vaccine.



You’re welcome to call your local pharmacist and make a vaccination appointment ahead of time. Or, simply arrive in-store when it’s convenient for you. Either way, we’ll make sure you’re quickly cared for.

Once you’ve arrive in-store, check in at the pharmacy counter. We’ll have some brief paperwork for you to fill out, including information about your insurance, before meeting with our pharmacist. The vaccination itself only takes about five minutes.


All students k-12 are now required to have two doses of varicella (chickenpox) vaccine before heading back to school.

Not sure if your child is due for his or her next immunization? Through our MyIR Portal, you can look up your family’s official state record of all their past immunizations administered by your doctors, pharmacists and other health care professionals.

Once you’ve signed in, you can print out an official certificate of your immunization history and choose to receive notifications when your family is due for their next vaccine. Or if you’d prefer, your pharmacist can do this for you instead.
