[ARCHIVED] Shingles Outreach Initiative

Montgomery County Aging and Adult Services partnered with the Montgomery County Health Department recently to distribute 180 free Shingles vaccines to individuals who were 60 and older and Montgomery County residents by appointment only. The clinic was hosted by Encore Experiences in Harleysville on June 2, 2015 from 9:00 to 11:45 am. 1 in 3 people will get Shingles in their lifetime. The virus that causes chickenpox never leaves your body. Instead, it stays in your nervous system and at any point can re-emerge and cause the Shingles rash. More clinics will be scheduled across the county in the coming months.
