Giant Food makes flu shot available at in-store pharmacies

Those looking to get a jump on their flu shots can head to their nearest Giant Food location to do so.

The retailer announced that the shot is now available at all of its in-store pharmacies for both and adults and children.

Administered by its certified in-store pharmacists, no appointment is required and it is often covered by most insurance plans. Most insurance companies, including Medicare, are billed directly, often at $0 copays, the company said.

"As the flu season quickly approaches, Giant welcomes everyone to come speak to one of our specially trained, dedicated pharmacists about flu shots and how to stay healthy this flu season," Paul Zvaleny, the Giant Food director of pharmacy operations, said. "It's never too early to be taking preventative measures to stay healthy, and we are happy to offer the flu shot as well as tetanus, pneumonia and shingles vaccinations."

Standard flu shots are available as are quad and high dose vaccinations. If unsure about the dosage, pharmacists can advise on appropriate dosing based on age, the company said.

In addition, customers who get their vaccination at Giant’s in-store pharmacy also will receive a free coupon book with more than $28 in savings on items and services.
