RSV (Respiratory Syncytial Virus)
- Respiratory Syncytial Virus or RSV is a common respiratory virus. Most people have mild, cold-like symptoms that resolve in a week or two. As a result, it often goes undetected. According to the CDC, it can lead to more dangerous infections in very young infants or older adults causing over 240, 000 hospitalizations per year.
- Since RSV cases occur during our flu season, it can be difficult to tell the differences between them, especially since they share some common symptoms along with COVID and the common cold. Each one does have its own unique features the help determine which infection you may have. See the chart below that outlines the different features.
- If you are experiencing some of the symptoms above, Tarrytown Pharmacy provides tests for RSV, flu, COVID, and strep. For more information on these tests and to schedule an appointment, see our testing page.
The RSV vaccine will be available this fall for adults aged 60 years and above. This will be an annual vaccine and can be given with other vaccines. We recommend getting your vaccine as soon as supply becomes available.
Flu Shots (Influenza)
- Influenza vaccines (often called “flu shots”) are vaccines that protect against four influenza viruses that research indicates will be most common during the upcoming season. These viruses change from year to year, so it is important to get an annual vaccination to protect you for that season.
- We offer a variety of flu shots to protect ages 6 months and up. This includes one of the preferred vaccines for older adults ≥ 65 years of age.
- Most flu shots are given in the arm. There is a nasal spray flu vaccine that is available upon request.

TDaP - tetanus, diptheria, and pertussis
Tdap vaccine helps prevent tetanus, diphtheria, and pertussis(whooping cough)
Tetanus enters the body through cuts or wounds. Diphtheria and pertussis spread from person to person usually through coughing or sneezing.
- TETANUS (T) causes painful stiffening of the muscles. Tetanus can lead to serious health problems, including being unable to open the mouth, having trouble swallowing and breathing, or death.
- DIPHTHERIA (D) can lead to difficulty breathing, heart failure, paralysis, or death.
- PERTUSSIS (aP), also known as “whooping cough,” can cause uncontrollable, violent coughing that makes it hard to breathe, eat, or drink. Pertussis can be extremely serious especially in babies and young children, causing pneumonia, convulsions, brain damage, or death. In teens and adults, it can cause weight loss, loss of bladder control, passing out, and rib fractures from severe coughing.
Recombinant zoster (shingles) vaccine can prevent shingles.
- This is a recombinant zoster vaccine that can prevent shingles in adults ≥ 50 years of age. It can also be given to adults ages 19 to 49 years that have certain medical conditions. Check with our Vaccination Team to see if you qualify.
- Shingles (also called herpes zoster, or just zoster) is a painful skin rash, usually with blisters. In addition to the rash, shingles can cause fever, headache, chills, or upset stomach. Rarely, shingles can lead to complications such as pneumonia, hearing problems, blindness, brain inflammation (encephalitis), or death.
- The risk of shingles increases with age. The most common complication of shingles is long-term nerve pain called postherpetic neuralgia (PHN). PHN occurs in the areas where the shingles rash was and can last for months or years after the rash goes away. The pain from PHN can be severe and debilitating.

We carry the pneumococcal conjugate vaccine, Prevnar 20, which covers a wide variety of diseases caused by pneumococcal bacteria.
Pneumococcal disease refers to any illness caused by pneumococcal bacteria. This includes many types of illnesses, including pneumonia, which is an infection of the lungs.
Pneumococcal bacteria are one of the most common causes of pneumonia. These bacteria can also cause:
- Ear infections
- Sinus infections
- Meningitis (infection of the tissue covering the brain and spinal cord). This is different than the viral meningococcal infection which requires a different vaccine.
- Bacteremia (infection of the blood)
Anyone can get pneumococcal disease. Those at highest risk include children under 2 years of age, people with certain medical conditions or other risk factors, and adults ≥ 65 years of age.
Most pneumococcal infections are mild. However, some can result in long-term problems, such as brain damage or hearing loss. Meningitis, bacteremia, and pneumonia caused by pneumococcal disease can be fatal.

Which Vaccines Should I Get?
- Vaccines are the best defense we have against serious, preventable, and sometimes deadly contagious diseases. They help the body prepare for future attacks.
- Your decision to vaccinate not only protects you, but also your loved ones and the community around you against diseases that spread by person-to-person transmission.
- To provide protection when it is most needed, vaccines are scheduled at different times throughout our lives. It is important to know when vaccines are needed. The CDC Immunization Schedules provide complete information on when and how vaccines need to be given for the best protection possible.
