MINNEAPOLIS Gearing up for flu season, Target will launch its nationwide flu vaccination program at its more than 1,600 pharmacies and Target Clinic locations beginning Sept. 1.
Target pharmacists and clinicians will administer the flu shots, at a cost of $24, during regular pharmacy and in-store clinic hours, including weekday evenings and weekends. Target Clinic locations also will offer the nasal spray for $36.
No appointment will be necessary for flu shots, which will protect against both the seasonal flu and H1N1 virus. The company said it would “accept many major insurance plans, which may cover the full cost of the flu vaccine.”
Keri Jones, Target SVP merchandising, said the goal will be to make the 1,743-store chain “the complete prevention destination.”
