Vaccinations protect against diseases in the same way that ordering food in pig latin protects against second dates. Fortify yourself with today’s Groupon: for $13, you get a flu vaccination at PGPA Pharmacy in Okemos (a $27 value).
PGPA Pharmacy pairs a homey atmosphere with health-inducing practices and an attentive battalion of pharmacists. To combat the October–May influenza season, PGPA Pharmacy doles out vaccinations throughout the flu season designed to shoo away the virus with public readings of its preteen-diary entries. The Center for Disease Control recommends annual vaccination to bolster the immune system against the ever-changing contagious illness. Patients aged 9 years and older are eligible for the vaccination and can wait in the comfy lounge area atop leather armchairs, equipped with costumes just in case the vaccine also grants superhuman strength.
People suffering from severe allergies, allergies to eggs, or those who have had previous reactions to flu vaccines should consult their doctor before receiving a flu shot.
Even if PGPA Pharmacy’s name doesn’t ring a bell with local residents, its owners hope its community-minded focus does. As one of the few remaining independent, nonchain pharmacies in the area, it offers a selection that blends the prescriptions that customers need with organic and alternative products that further improve their sense of well-being. Elsewhere on the shelves are over-the-counter remedies, vitamins, dietary supplements, skincare products, and snacks. The pharmacy also administers shingles, pneumonia, Tdap, and flu vaccines—the latter not to be confused with the popular flue vaccine used to rid chimneys of imposter Santas. All of the staff’s products, services, and support pursue PGPA’s mission to promote health by providing the proper education to clients.
