Infections are the most common cause of human disease, and vaccines are the best defense we have against serious, preventable, and sometimes deadly contagious diseases. Vaccines help the body’s immune system prepare for future attacks. A decision to vaccinate is a decision to help protect not only individuals, but to also protect entire communities from diseases which are spread by person-to-person transmission.

Knowing that an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure, we now offer in-store health screenings to detect indicators for serious health risks.

- Walk-ins welcome, no scheduling required
- All tests available during normal pharmacy hours
- Results received by the end of the visit (usually 5-10 minutes)
- Simple finger-prick for tests requiring samples
- Blood Pressure (fasting NOT required)
- Hypertension, or high blood pressure, can be present without feeling any differently, and controlling high blood pressure is crucial in the prevention of heart attack or stroke. This test is completely non-invasive and involves an inflatable arm cuff.
- Blood Glucose (fasting recommended but not required):
- Blood glucose, or blood sugar, can lead to various different health issues when left uncontrolled. Controlling blood glucose is important to prevent health problems associated with diabetes including cardiovascular, vision, and kidney problems. This test involves a finger stick in order to test a small sample of blood for the current blood glucose level at that time.
- Blood Glucose Average (A1C) $40 (fasting NOT required):
- While the normal blood glucose test only provides a snap-shot of the current level of sugar in the blood, the A1C test can reveal what the average blood glucose level has been for the previous three months. This test also requires a finger stick to test the blood but is not affected by food and drinks consumed around the time of testing.
- Cholesterol (Full Lipid Panel) $40 (fasting for 10 hours required):
- This cholesterol test gives a complete breakdown of cholesterol in the blood including the HDL (good) cholesterol, the LDL (bad) cholesterol, and triglycerides. Maintaining a proper balance of cholesterol is vital to the prevention of heart attack or stroke.
Having to go to the hospital can be scary. What can be even scarier is leaving with a stack of paperwork and unclear instructions on what to do next. Tarrytown Pharmacy is offering a new service called Transitions of Care. If you have just been discharged from the hospital within the last two weeks, we will go through all of your old and new medications and paperwork with you and contact your providers to make sure that you are properly set up for the future.
This service usually has a $260 service cost but for these next few months, it will be free of charge for all Tarrytown patients! The majority of medication related errors are caused by miscommunications between hospitals, primary care providers, and hospitals. We are here to make sure that does not happen to you. The next time you are discharged from the hospital, just call Tarrytown Pharmacy and ask for our Transitions of Care service.
