BENTONVILLE, Ark. — Sam's Club is offering 10 immunizations for cold and flu season, the warehouse retailer said Monday.
The retailer said it would offer the immunizations at its 552 pharmacies. In partnership with Mollen Immunization Clinics, it's also offering an expanded menu of immunizations by registered nurses through Nov. 15. The immunizations include flu, pneumonia, chickenpox, shingles, Tdap, human papillomavirus, MMR, meningitis, hepatitis A and hepatitis B.
"Under-vaccinated communities can face a greater risk of local outbreaks of disease, and the [Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's] recommended vaccine schedule for adults is a great reference to ensure that our communities stay healthy," Sam's Club SVP health and wellness Jill Turner-Mitchael said. "By offering the CDC's recommended vaccines this year, Sam's Club pharmacies continue to help our communities live healthy at a remarkable value."
