CAMP HILL, Pa. — Rite Aid is expanding the range of vaccines that customers can get at its stores in West Virginia following rules recently enacted by state regulators, the retail pharmacy chain said Tuesday.
Under the new regulations adopted by the state pharmacy, medicine and osteopathy boards, pharmacists now can vaccinate adult patients against hepatitis A, hepatitis B, tetanus, diphtheria, whooping cough, shingles, flu and pneumonia.
"Thanks to the new regulations, it's easier than ever for West Virginians in both rural and urban communities to protect themselves against a wide range of diseases," Rite Aid regional VP pharmacy Bill Cropper said.
