Optum Urgent Care, Mount Ephraim - 2 S Black Horse Pike, Mount Ephraim
The staff and Dr. Leibrandt at Optum Urgent Care in Mt. Ephraim, NJ were the best. I was seen within a reasonable amount of time. They showed much care and concern for how I was feeling. I will continue to use this provider when I cannot get an appointment to see my primary doctor.

Excellent experience, again. Had positive covid test at home, within a few hours was seen and had an Rx for paxlovid. Everyone was professional and kind. The original Rx didn't make it through the digital sphere to CVS and when I called the office about it, it was resent within minutes. Really appreciate the care. Thank you :)

MedExpress Urgent Care, Wilmington MedExpress Walk-In Care - 2722 Concord Pike, Wilmington
I cannot say enough about my incredibly positive experience at Med Express on 202 yesterday! I have received care here on 3 or 4 other occasions and have been pleased, but yesterday's visit topped the charts! I originally stopped in at around 4:00 and there was an hour wait, so I drove to another facility where my experience was so bad, I walked out prior to being seen by a provider. Back to Med Express at about 6:00pm with bad back pain and was seen within 10 minutes of arriving.The nurse checking me in,Jen, was familiar,and as kind and friendly as I had remembered!T he PA ,Lauren, was extremely friendly, confident, efficient, and caring. I was able to get x-rays of my back on site and Lauren came back to let me know that my back looked pretty good, but that there was another issue they saw that I would have never known about had she not shared this with me. The x-ray technician, Urfan?, was so lovely and patient, consistently asking me if I was doing okay. I received treatment and was given my x-rays on disc to take with me. Only 30 minutes after I left, I received a follow-up call from Lauren to share the radiologist's findings. I missed her call, but as soon as the facility opened the next morning, I got another call to follow-up. Wow!! Unheard of! Just 30 minutes later, the attending physician, who was signing off on my chart, called me personally to discuss a possible medication interaction he felt should be brought to my attention. I almost couldn't believe this close attention to my care. I had a wonderful PCP before she retired, and I didn't even get this from her office. I am so grateful to these individuals who went above and beyond. Outstanding work, Med Express 202!!

Delaware Shingles Vaccine

The shingles vaccination can lower your chances of developing shingles and its complications, such as long-term nerve pain. Knowing more about this vaccine and what it can do will assist you in making informed health decisions for yourself and your family.

About the shingles

The varicella-zoster virus causes shingles, which is a painful, blistering skin rash. The varicella-zoster virus is the same virus that causes chickenpox, according to the National Library of Medicine (NLM).

After you've had chickenpox, your body becomes dormant. The chickenpox virus can cause shingles if it reactivates, which normally happens several years later, according to the National Library of Medicine.

According to the National Library of Medicine, those aged 60 and up who had chickenpox before the age of 12 months are at the greatest risk of acquiring shingles. If your immune system has been impaired by sickness or drugs, you may be at greater risk for shingles.

Shingles Symptoms

The major symptom of shingles, according to the National Library of Medicine, is a painful skin rash that starts on the spine and wraps around to the front of the chest or abdomen. According to the National Library of Medicine, some persons may get rashes around their eyes, lips, and ears.

According to the National Library of Medicine, discomfort, tingling, and burning on one side of the body are common symptoms before rashes form. These feelings are followed by red skin patches and little blisters, which burst open to form small, dry, crusty sores. Shingles sores normally come off in two to three weeks and do not leave scars.

According to the National Library of Medicine, other shingles symptoms include:

  • Fever and chills
  • Headache
  • Malaise
  • Joint pain
  • Muscle weakness
  • Swollen lymph nodes
  • Drooping eyelid
  • Hearing loss
  • Vision problems
  • Taste problems

How to contract it

After you've had chickenpox, the varicella-zoster virus reactivates in your body, causing shingles. You cannot catch shingles from someone else who has it, according to the CDC. You can, however, catch chickenpox from someone who has shingles, increasing your chances of having shingles later.

No one knows why the varicella-zoster virus unexpectedly becomes active again years later, according to the National Library of Medicine. Many people who had mild bouts of chickenpox are unaware they ever got the virus in the first place, according to the report.

What vaccines can help prevent shingles?

Shingles can be prevented with two doses of the Shingrix shingles vaccine. According to the CDC, the Shingrix vaccine can also lower your risk of shingles complications. This shingles shot is given in the upper arm and is more than 90% efficient in preventing shingles in persons 50 years and older with a healthy immune system, according to the company.

Should I get the shingles vaccine?

The shingles vaccination is recommended by the CDC for people 50 years and older, as well as those 19 years and older, who have impaired immune systems owing to disease or pharmaceutical therapy. It also advises getting the shingles vaccine if you've already had shingles and/or chickenpox, as well as if you've had another shingles vaccine called Zostavax, which is no longer available in the US.

What are the side effects?

According to the CDC, the shingles vaccine may cause transient adverse effects that interfere with your ability to do routine everyday activities for two to three days.

The following are some of the possible shingles vaccine side effects:

  • Sore arm with mild to moderate pain
  • Redness and swelling at the injection site
  • Tiredness
  • Muscle pain
  • Headache
  • Fever and chills
  • Stomach pain
  • Nausea

Side effects are more likely in younger people, according to the CDC, and you may have a reaction to the shingles injection after both doses. If you have side effects after the shingles vaccine, it recommends taking over-the-counter pain relievers such ibuprofen or acetaminophen.

Guillain-Barré syndrome is another possible side effect of the shingles vaccine, according to the CDC (GBS). According to the National Library of Medicine, GBS is an uncommon but deadly disorder in which your immune system attacks the peripheral nervous system, which regulates the nerves in your brain and spinal cord.

Can I get a shingles vaccine if I’m younger than 50?

According to the CDC, if you are under 50 years old and have a weakened immune system due to disease or medications used to treat a disease, you should only get the shingles vaccine if you are at least 19 years old and have a weakened immune system due to disease or medications used to treat a disease. If you have any concerns, go to your health care provider.

Will Medicare or my health insurance pay for a shingles vaccine?

According to Medicare.gov, the shingles vaccine is covered by most Medicare prescription medication plans, such as Part D, but not by Medicare Part A (Hospital Insurance) or Medicare Part B (Medical Insurance). Depending on the type of policy you have, your health insurance plan may or may not cover the shingles vaccine. Check with Medicare or your health insurance provider to see if the shingles vaccination is covered under your plan.

Shingles Vaccine FAQs

  • Who should get the shingles vaccine?

    The shingles vaccination is suggested for people aged 50 and up, as well as those aged 19 and up who have impaired immune systems owing to disease or medication. The Shingrix vaccine has no upper age limit, according to the CDC.

  • Who should not get the shingles vaccine?

    People who have shingles or are allergic to any of the vaccine's components should not obtain the shingles vaccine, according to the CDC. Pregnant women should avoid taking the shingles vaccine as well.

  • How well does the shingles vaccine work?

    According to the CDC, the shingles vaccination is 97 percent effective in preventing shingles in persons aged 50 to 69 with robust immune systems, and 91 percent effective in adults aged 70 and beyond. It goes on to say that the shingles vaccination is 68 percent to 91 percent effective at preventing shingles in persons with weaker immune systems. According to the CDC, the Shingrix vaccination is 91 percent effective in individuals 50 years and older, and 89 percent effective in adults 70 years and older in avoiding long-term nerve damage from shingles.

  • What are the possible side effects of the shingles vaccine?

    The shingles vaccine, according to the CDC, may produce negative effects. Soreness in the arm, fatigue, headache, fever, shivering, stomach pain, and nausea are some of the side effects. In extremely rare cases, it can also induce GBS.

  • How can I pay for the shingles vaccine?

    Your health insurance plan may pay the cost of the shingles vaccine. Check with your health insurance provider to see if the shingles vaccine is covered under your plan. According to the CDC, some pharmaceutical firms may cover the cost of the shingles vaccination for qualified people who cannot afford it, and that more information should be sought from GlaxoSmithKline, the vaccine's maker.

  • How often do you need to get the shingles vaccine?

    According to the CDC, those aged 50 and over only only two doses of the shingles vaccine, separated by two to six months. Adults aged 19 and above who have a compromised immune system should receive a second dose of the shingles vaccination one to two months following the first.

  • What happens if you don't get a second Shingrix shot?

    If you don't obtain a second Shingrix shot within the specified time frame, make an appointment with your doctor as soon as possible. According to the CDC, if you wait more than six months to get your second dose of the shingles vaccination, you do not need to restart the vaccine series.

  • How long after the shingles vaccine are you contagious?

    Shingles is a contagious virus that exclusively affects those who have already had chickenpox, according to the CDC. Even if you've already had chickenpox, the CDC recommends obtaining the shingles vaccine.

  • Can you get shingles after being vaccinated?

    According to the CDC, the shingles vaccine is not 100 percent effective, therefore it is possible to have shingles after being vaccinated.

  • Where can I get the shingles vaccine in Delaware?

    The shingles vaccination is available through your general care physician, as well as from an urgent care facility, walk-in clinic, or drugstore. Use Solv to identify top-rated shingles vaccine providers in your area and make a same-day or next-day appointment right on the website.
