I brought my son in for his asthma. We were only there for a brief time but as soon as we walked in the door, everyone was EXTREMELY helpful and attentive. The young lady at the front desk heard my son’s breathing and immediately came around to get his O2 saturations. We only waited a few minutes before we were called back and within 5 min he was seen by the PA who quickly recommended we head to the ER and gave her honest recommendation of where we needed to go. Then before leaving another young lady gave by son a bunch of suckers :) The staff was so kind and caring and we truly appreciated their care and concern. I would highly recommend this urgent care facility.

I live directly across from their building. I have a primary doctor, but his hours are limited so I began going to urgent care for those minor little things that need addressing, but my doctor wasn’t available. Hands down the best office staff I’ve ever seen. Best nurses. Dr. Ollie.llI live directly across from their building. I have a primary doctor, but his hours are limited so I began going to urgent care for those minor little things that need addressing, but my doctor wasn’t available. Hands down the best office staff I’ve ever seen. Best nurses. Dr. Ali is someone who has never once rush me made me feel silly for dumb questions. It always leaves. Is there anything else you need. I completely trust him. He is not a man, nor have I ever asked frankly, to prescribe narcotics, so if that’s what you want this isn’t the place to go. I don’t want those things so I’m happy with them and God bless him for that there’s a female doctor. Unfortunately I don’t know her name. I’ve seen her twice and it was an emergency emergency and I don’t like her and I now call ahead to make sure she’s not there. It was a complete waste of time. Her diagnosis was completely wrong, and in the wrong direction I know that because the next day I went to the real emergency room and the day after that my physician, and I had a very serious problem that she didn’t even talk to me about. Plus she absolutely has the personality of cardboard so now I just call ahead and ask who’s there. Today Dr. Ali wasn’t in but I got to meet the actual owner and he was amazing. I would be remiss not to mention Champaign Pharmacy within the building at first they were convenient because they were there and I had a prescription and I had them fill it. I’m a senior, and I do take several medication‘s. I learned that they deliver them. Ali, the pharmacist and Sarah of the tech are two of the dearest people. I basically would call them my friends that I don’t go out and party with but if I partied I would actually take them with me lol if you need a good pharmacy people understand listen and help you take them and give them a try. As far as the doctors bedside manner, the owner who I met today, and Dr. Ali, we’re amazing. And thank probably to Dr. Ali’s frustration. I always make him hug me. I didn’t do that to the new guy today because he doesn’t know me lol the female let you know back off I’m untouchable nothing I would want to, but back off I’m gonna touchable let’s get this over with. I heard they were going to get a primary physician in there boy I hope she’s not that person. It would just bring the facility down honestly. I’m not trying to be mean I’m just telling the straight up truth. I never pre-book appointments I just walk in and sign in. There’s never a wait and if there is, it’s very short. Let’s be honest they are urgent care. They can’t do all the things that an emergency room can do. That’s why it’s called urgent care. It’s not because they’re not skilled or don’t want to do further things. It’s because they’re not set up at As a facility for that. These are great doctors helping people who need something now and if you don’t like these people I’m talking about there’s totally something wrong with you. No comment about the female doctor. The truth is, I’ve spent About 28 years working in the legal career field when doing that everybody tends to get the attitude over the years and get them before they get me. Frankly it’s inevitable that’s what you do and live with every day so I have no problem complaining as you can see about the female doctor. But I try really hard and people are exemplar order really out of their way to make a point to share that with others in whatever way that would benefit them best. And that’s what this is all about I can totally complain, and make things really difficult for some. But I want to really really double Double down on that and say the complete opposite that these are wonderful folks give them a chance

Melvindale Shingles Vaccine

The shingles vaccine can help reduce your risk of getting shingles and related complications, such as long-term nerve discomfort. Knowing more about this vaccine and what it can do for you and your family will help you make better health decisions for yourself and your family.

About the shingles

Shingles is a painful, blistering skin rash caused by the varicella-zoster virus. According to the National Library of Medicine, the varicella-zoster virus is the same virus that causes chickenpox (NLM).

Your body goes into dormancy once you've experienced chickenpox. According to the National Library of Medicine, the chickenpox virus can reactivate and produce shingles if it does so several years later.

According to the National Library of Medicine, people over 60 who had chickenpox before the age of 12 months are most likely to develop shingles. You may be more susceptible to shingles if your immune system has been weakened by illness or medicines.

Shingles Symptoms

According to the National Library of Medicine, the main symptom of shingles is a painful skin rash that starts on the spine and wraps around to the front of the chest or abdomen. Some people may develop rashes around their eyes, lips, and ears, according to the National Library of Medicine.

Before rashes appear, pain, tingling, and burning on one side of the body are common symptoms, according to the National Library of Medicine. Following these feelings, red skin patches and little blisters appear, which rupture open to form small, dry, crusty sores. Shingles sores usually heal in two to three weeks with no scarring.

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 the shingles

The varicella-zoster virus reactivates in your body after you've had chickenpox, resulting in shingles. According to the CDC, you cannot receive shingles from someone else who has it. Chickenpox can, however, be contracted from someone who has shingles, increasing your chances of developing shingles later.

According to the National Library of Medicine, no one knows why the varicella-zoster virus suddenly becomes active again years later. According to the findings, many people who had mild cases of chickenpox are unaware they even had the virus in the first place.

What vaccines can help prevent shingles?

Two doses of the Shingrix shingles vaccination can prevent shingles. The Shingrix vaccine, according to the CDC, can also reduce your risk of shingles complications. According to the business, this shingles shot, which is given in the upper arm, is more than 90% effective in preventing shingles in people 50 and older with a good immune system.

Should I get the shingles vaccine?

The CDC recommends shingles immunization for adults aged 50 and up, as well as those aged 19 and up, who have compromised immune systems as a result of disease or pharmaceutical therapy. It also recommends having the shingles vaccination if you've had shingles and/or chickenpox in the past, as well as if you've had another shingles vaccine called Zostavax, which is no longer available in the United States.

What are the side effects?

The shingles vaccine, according to the CDC, can induce temporary side effects that make it difficult to accomplish ordinary tasks 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

According to the CDC, side effects are more common in younger people, and you may have a reaction to the shingles injection after both doses. It is recommended that you take over-the-counter pain medicines such as ibuprofen or acetaminophen if you experience side effects after getting the shingles vaccine.

According to the CDC, another possible side effect of the shingles vaccine is Guillain-Barré syndrome (GBS). GBS is a rare but dangerous illness in which your immune system targets the peripheral neurological system, which controls the nerves in your brain and spinal cord, according to the National Library of Medicine.

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

According to the CDC, 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 are under 50 years old and have a weakened immune system due to disease or medications used to treat a disease. Consult your health-care professional if you have any concerns.

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

The shingles vaccine is covered by most Medicare prescription drug plans, such as Part D, but not by Medicare Part A (Hospital Insurance) or Medicare Part B, according to Medicare.gov (Medical Insurance). Your health insurance plan may or may not cover the shingles vaccine, depending on the type of policy you have. To see if the shingles vaccine is covered under your plan, contact Medicare or your health insurance provider.

    You should get the shingles vaccine if you are at high risk for getting it or if you are experiencing symptoms. It is recommended that individuals 60 and older get the shingles vaccine, as this is when the risk of contraction is high. Even if you have previously contracted shingles, you should get the vaccine to prevent or mitigate future cases. The shingles vaccine is not recommended by the CDC for anyone younger than 60 because it has not yet been thoroughly studied in those age groups.

  • How much does a shingles vaccine cost in Melvindale?

    Without insurance, a shingles vaccine and the consultation generally preceding it can cost anywhere from $200 to $250.

  • Is a shingles vaccine covered by my insurance?

    All Medicare part D and most private health insurance plans cover the shingles vaccine. Typically, you will have to cover a co-payment for the consultation and, in some cases, the vaccine itself.

  • How well does the shingles vaccine work?

    The shingles vaccine, according to the CDC, is 97 percent effective in preventing shingles in people aged 50 to 69 who have a strong immune system, and 91 percent effective in people aged 70 and up who have a weak immune system. It goes on to claim that in people with weakened immune systems, the shingles vaccine is 68 percent to 91 percent effective in preventing shingles. According to the CDC, the Shingrix vaccine is 91 percent effective in preventing long-term nerve damage from shingles in people 50 years and older, and 89 percent effective in adults 70 years and older.

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

    The CDC recommends that people over 50 receive just two doses of the shingles vaccination, separated by two to six months. Adults aged 19 and above with a weakened immune system should have a second dose of the shingles vaccine one to two months after the first.

  • How long after the shingles vaccine are you contagious?

    According to the CDC, shingles is a contagious virus that only infects those who have already had chickenpox. The CDC recommends getting the shingles vaccination even if you've already had chickenpox.
