In wake of Harvey, Paramount Rx helps cover cost of tetanus vaccines at H-E-B stores

CARY, N.C. —  In response to public health concerns associated with flooding, Prescription Benefits Manager Paramount Rx has partnered with grocery retailer H-E-B to support the distribution of 2,500 free tetanus vaccinations at H-E-B stores in certain areas affected by Hurricane Harvey.

“Even as flood waters recede, leftover debris still pose a threat to those who have not received a tetanus booster in the last 10 years,” reported Ken Hammond, president Paramount Rx. “As an organization dedicated to improving the health and wellbeing of our customers, we were grateful for the opportunity to collaborate with H-E-B to help protect Houston residents in the difficult months ahead.”

Paramount Rx donated $75,000 to support the distribution of tetanus vaccinations in the Houston and Gulf Coast region. Tetanus, often called lockjaw, is a serious infection caused by bacteria present in soil and dust. Coming into contact with flood debris could increase the likelihood of infection.
