It’s that time of the year again. The kids are back in school. The football games. The soccer games. The crowds.
Oh no. Here comes the flu!
Fortunately, Lehan Drugs provides more than 3000 vaccinations yearly, offering patients one of the most convenient methods for receiving recommended vaccines, including flu shots, shingles, and pneumonia vaccinations.
Lehan Drugs immunization program was the catalyst in Lehan’s earning the 2009 “Most Innovative Pharmacy Practice” award for the state of Illinois.
In accordance with Illinois state law, Lehan’s provides immunizations for patients age 10 and older. These include:
– Influenza (recommended for most patients, provided for all Medicare recipients free of charge, available to the general public.)
– Shingles (Zostavax®, recommended for all patients over 60 who have had chicken pox)
– Pneumonia (recommended for patients over 65, and covered fully by Medicare)

âIn 1986, Congress passed the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act. The law was created by Congress in response to lobbying by the pharmaceutical industry and medical trade associations to shield drug companies and doctors from civil product liability and malpractice lawsuits for injuries and deaths caused by federally recommended and state mandated vaccines. The law, which acknowledged that vaccines carry serious risks, created a federal vaccine injury compensation program (VICP). By 2013, the VICP had awarded more than $2.6 billion to vaccine injured individuals and their families; however two out of three vaccine injury claims are rejected for compensation. It is estimated that only between one and 10 percent of all vaccine adverse events are reported to Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System(VAERS).â – National Vaccine Information Center
âHere’s the problem. Between one and 10% of all the injuries are reported. Can anyone read that backwards? Between 90 and 99% are not reported.â – John Bergman
âWe have a highly profitable lucrative religion that involves government, industry, and academia. And that religion is vaccination. I think parents really need to sit and think long and hard about how much information they are given before their child is injected.â – Suzanne Humphries
