Immunizations available for both adults and children; no cost with most insurance plans

Carlisle, PA. (September 7, 2016) - To help customers stay healthy this flu season, vaccinations are now available at all GIANT Food Stores and MARTIN’S Food Markets in-store pharmacies. Flu vaccinations are administered by GIANT/MARTIN’S in-store pharmacists, with no appointment needed.

“Flu shots are reformulated every year so you need to be vaccinated every year to help combat the flu virus,” said Leigh Shirley, director of pharmacy operations, GIANT/MARTIN’S. “It’s not too early to get your flu shot so stop into any one of GIANT/MARTIN’S in-store pharmacies."

Most insurance plans cover flu shots at $0 copays and GIANT/MARTIN’S pharmacies bill them directly, including Medicare. Standard flu shots for both adults and children are available, as well as other flu vaccinations, including the “quad” and high dose vaccines. See pharmacist for applicable ages and details for children. Customers receiving flu shots will also receive a free coupon book with more than $40 in savings.

In addition to receiving their flu shots, all customers will be offered free vaccination reviews. With a few simple questions, GIANT/MARTIN’S pharmacists are able to determine if you are missing any recommended adult vaccinations.

For more information, or to schedule an onsite flu clinic for your office, please call 800-950-4678.
