(Aitkin, MN) — We recently had the chance to catch up with Dr Matthew Doucette of GuidePoint Pharmacy of Aitkin with Cold and Flu Season nearing and COVID-19 continuing to evolve every day.

Dr. Doucette spoke about how the Influenza numbers are lower than typical at this time of year due to a combination of factors beyond COVID-19.

With recent news of a COVID-19 vaccine being produced, the question remains on protocols of who receives the shot after healthcare workers and assisted living facilities.

Early trials of the produced vaccine have produced similar effects to other vaccine shots.

Speaking of the Shingles vaccine…

Flu shot vaccines are still available at GuidePoint Pharmacy in Aitkin and can be arranged for curbside delivery. Call GuidePoint at 218-670-7120 to schedule an appointment.
