CAMP HILL, Pa. — Rite Aid is offering a $5 discount on flu vaccinations through the middle of this month, the retail pharmacy chain said Monday.
To mark National Influenza Vaccination Week, which the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention started in 2005, which started Sunday and runs through Saturday, Rite Aid is administering flu vaccinations for $24.99 through Dec. 15. The original price was $29.99.
"The [Centers for Disease Control and Prevention] is reporting an increase in flu activity in parts of the country and expects to see more activity during the winter months, which is when flu season typically peaks," Rite Aid EVP pharmacy Robert Thompson said. The CDC recommends flu vaccinations for everyone aged 6 months and older.
