My experience was nothing but positive. The nurse who took care of me, and also helped me at the front desk, was very professional, patient, and kind. I was seen quickly by the doctor, who took his time and was also very patient. He answered all my questions and gave me input that other doctors had not. I definitely recommend going here.

I gave the Flemington Doctor Is In 5 stars to be read. However, if I could have given them negative 5 stars, I would. When I visited them last winter, I was sick as a dog and had my formal negative Covid test results with me. Standing in front of the door, I called the number on door and got NO answer while looking at the person at the reception desk who ignore both my waving and the phone ringing. Next, I knocked on the door pointing to my phone. Finally, she answered my call and told me I need to let them Covid test me onsite, and only for CASH $70.+ I believe. Next, I called the Clinton office to see if this was a company-wide policy. The Clinton Doctor Is In was very helpful and deserves 5 stars. That office did not require that they perform their own Covid test for me to be seen. The Flemington branch my opinion Covid SCAM. Steer clear. Read comments from the many other one star ratings which describe equally frustrating experiences with this Flemington Doctor Is In such as, David R. 8/11 "This isn't medical care. In fact, it's the opposite. Dr. Klein put profits over his long-time patient's safety. We'll never forgive him for this cruel act. We're just grateful that we found an outstanding new doctor." I expect each "The Doctor Is In" has its own policies and rules. The above negative comments only apply to the Flemington Doctor Is In. FLEMINGTON 08822 Another 1 star customer (when sick)-I would not waste your time going here. I got a rapid covid test done and not once did anyone tell me i had to pay an office visit as well. The doctors office charged my card without my knowledge and told me they were calling as a courtesy to let me know they had to and i told them not to and i did NOT give my permission but they charged it...

My own doctor was not available and I wasn’t sick enough to go to the emergency room.But I needed to be a evaluated . I contacted Hunterdon Urgent Care . They advised me to come down to be seen . From the initial phone call to my being welcomed warmly by the receptionist area I felt a sense of relief. My experience with the Nurse and the Doctor was positive and reassuring . This is the second time I have had to use Urgent Care and I heartily recommend them especially if you need to be seen promptly and your own PCP is not available . They are a great option

Milford 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.

  • Who should get a shingles vaccine?

    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 Milford?

    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.
