Kmart Pharmacy announces flu shot availability
With flu season fast approaching, Kmart’s pharmacies are looking to lend a helping hand to the increased demand this year.
The Hoffman Estates, Ill.-based company announced that flu shots are now available at its pharmacies — at no coast with most insurances.
“The single best way to prevent the flu is to get a flu vaccine each season. We encourage every individual and family to be protected, especially after the severity of recent flu seasons,” Jennifer Speares Lehman, registered pharmacist and divisional vice president for Kmart Pharmacy said. “It's more important than ever for patients to use their local pharmacy to get a flu shot to help alleviate the potential strain on other medical professionals during the season.”
Pharmacists are following CDC guidelines for immunizing during a pandemic, and no appointment is necessary, the company said.
“Our goal is to keep everyone healthy this season while also giving back to our members who can earn rewards for each flu shot purchased and prescription filled. Our immunization-certified pharmacists truly care about the well-being of our members, and they do their very best to provide information and advice on health and wellness,” Speares Lehman said. “They're personable, approachable and professional, and that's why Kmart Pharmacy is consistently recognized for exceptional customer service.”
