Influenza (flu) is a highly infectious acute respiratory illness caused by the influenza virus. Influenza affects people of all ages. Outbreaks of influenza occur almost every year, usually in winter. This is why it is also known as seasonal flu. The vaccine works by decreasing the risk of contracting the flu if you are in contact with anyone who has the virus or who is high risk. It is important to get the vaccination every year if you are at risk, as the flu strains covered every year differ. The Flu Vaccination is a walk in service available at Daltons Pharmacy, no appointment is required. With a medical card or doctor’s visit card, it may be available to you for free. Call into Dalton’s Pharmacy or phone 021-4276066 for more information.

Why may I need to be vaccinated?
If you’re planning to travel outside Ireland you may need to be vaccinated before you leave. These vaccinations can help protect you against some of the serious diseases that are found in other parts of the world.

Whilst we have a childhood vaccination programme in Ireland that protects against a number of diseases (including tetanus, diphtheria and polio), the vaccinations don’t cover most of the infectious disease that are found overseas.

How can I get my travel vaccinations?
Firstly, complete a travel consultation with a doctor of your choosing. 

You can complete this online at MyClinic or VideoDoc. Your doctor will prescribe travel vaccinations that are best suited to your needs, and also offer general health recommendations for your travels. 

Once you’ve completed the consultation, you’ll be sent your prescription, which can either be delivered to you or directly to Daltons Pharmacy. At present, any doctor can email  prescriptions to Daltons Pharmacy via a secure service called Healthmail. Our healthmail address is daltons.northmainst@healthmail.ie. Please contact us directly after your consultation and we will arrange a suitable time for you to call into the pharmacy to get your travel vaccination administered by one of our pharmacists.

In Ireland there are estimated to be about 200,000 people living with diabetes, approximately 1 in 3 of whom are unaware they have the condition

They also help to prevent the build up of excess fluid in the legs reducing swelling and discomfort. They may be prescribed by your GP, recommended to you by a nurse or other healthcare professional.

You will be measured to see what size stockings you may need and our pharmacist will be able to advise you on what strength of compression you may need.

What is Pneumococcal disease?
Pneumococcal disease is a very serious disease caused by a bacterial infection. It is a major cause of illness and death, particularly amongst the very young, the very old, those with long-term medical conditions and those with no spleen or impaired immunity.

It is a major cause of pneumonia in the community.

How does the Vaccine Work?
The vaccination is given as an injection in the arm and can be given at the same time as the flu vaccine.

This vaccine protects against 23 types of pneumococcal disease including those most likely to cause severe disease and most people only need to receive the vaccine once.

If you are aged under 65 years a booster vaccination (usually given 5 years after the first) may be recommended if you have a condition where your antibody levels are likely to decline rapidly e.g. no spleen, or a condition that weakens your immune system.

At Daltons Pharmacy, we offer an excellent Weight Management Service that incorporates the NewWeigh Diet. Click here for more details on NewWeigh.

NewWeigh guarantees amazing results in a reasonable but accelerated timeframe. Nationally, people using NewWeigh can typically expect to lose weight 3-5lbs per week if you are male and 2-4lbs per week if you are female. In many instances, we have seen weight loss at higher rates than this with good motivation and support from our staff.

Our weight management service has 3 options:

  1. NewWeigh Total Diet Replacement (TDR): €68.50 per week
  2. NewWeigh Meal Replacement Plan (MRP): €2.35 per meal (one sachet)
  3. Consultation and advice on healthy eating and exercise alone: free

In all instances, weight loss and management has 3 stages:

  1. Lose the weight
  2. Reintroduction to food
  3. Maintenance of your new weight

We are constantly asked “But will I keep the weight off?” The answer to this question depends on your willingness to work with us after you have lost your weight. We typically advise people to continue to come for private weigh-ins weekly for 6 to 8 weeks after their weight loss. During these weeks, we will help you find foods you love that are nutritious and healthy but also meet your daily calorie needs, which will help us prove to you that you can maintain your weight loss.

This 6 to 8 week period is only a guide but we are happy for you to come as often and for as long as you want. A person that continues to come in and engage is very unlikely to return to their former unhealthy weight.

The Shingles vaccine can greatly reduce your risk of getting Shingles. If you are unlucky enough to go on to get Shingles after vaccination there is a:

  • 61% reduction in burden of illness
  • 73% reduction in cases of Shingles with severe and long-lasting pain

Who should get the Shingles vaccine?

The Shingles vaccine is available without a prescription to anyone aged 50 years or older.

Even if you have already had Shingles, the Shingles vaccine is still recommended. The Shingles vaccine works very well in people who have had Shingles before and it will boost your immunity against further Shingles attacks.

The vaccine cannot be given to patients who have a weakened immune system, are allergic to any ingredients in the vaccine, have untreated tuberculosis or are pregnant.



Why should you care about your Blood Pressure?
High blood pressure (also called hypertension) causes silent damage to the blood vessels and the heart. If untreated this damage progresses over time and may result in stroke or heart attack.  These serious events occur at a younger age in people with high blood pressure than in people with normal blood pressure.  High blood pressure also increases the risk of damage to the blood vessels in your kidneys and eyes. What is Blood Pressure? Everyone has blood pressure.  It shows the amount of work that your heart has to do to pump blood around the body.  Two numbers measure your level of blood pressure.  The top number records blood pressure when the pressure is at its highest as your heart muscle squeezes out the blood from your heart – this is called systolic pressure. Then your heart relaxes, which allows the blood to flow back into your heart – this is called diastolic pressure. Ideal blood pressure is about 120 (systolic) over 80 (diastolic) or less. The only way to know if you have high blood pressure is to get it measured.  Most people with high blood pressure will feel fine and not notice any symptoms which is why checking is the only way to know if you suffer from elevated blood pressure. What will you do if I have higher than ideal blood pressure? We follow National guidelines which dictate the best course of action for you. Usually, you will need to see your doctor inside a certain time frame and we will work with you on this. Usually, we will get you back for another check before the referral time period has passed to ensure we are not sending you to your doctor unnecessarily. We may also recommend that we further investigate using our 24hr blood pressure monitor which is the best way to examine blood pressure. Blood Pressure checks are free at Daltons Pharmacy.
