CAMP HILL, Pa. — Rite Aid is responding to a flu vaccination campaign by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention by lowering prices on flu vaccinations, the retail pharmacy chain said Monday.
To mark National Influenza Vaccination Week, the retailer is offering flu shots for $19.99 through Dec. 17.
"Despite popular myth, it's not too late to get a flu shot, as flu activity usually peaks during the winter months," Rite Aid EVP pharmacy Robert Thompson said. "There's no better time than National Influenza Vaccination Week to get a flu shot."
