MARTIN'S FOOD MARKET OFFERS IN-STORE FLU CLINICS

Richmond, VA  This fall MARTIN'S Food Markets will offer flu vaccinations to help their customers stay flu-free. All MARTIN'S pharmacies in the Richmond and Williamsburg communities are now offering convenient walk-in flu vaccinations provided by trusted in-store pharmacists.

"The best way to manage flu is to prevent it through vaccination," said John Beckner, regional pharmacy manager. "Flu viruses change from year to year and as a result, the flu vaccine is re-formulated. This year, the regular seasonal flu vaccination provides immunity against the H1N1 virus as well as other seasonal flu strains."

The cost for the flu shot is $25 and a pneumonia shot is $50. Medicare along with several private insurance plans will be accepted. Customers wishing to get vaccinated should call their local MARTIN'S pharmacy or visit www.martinsfoods.com/flushots for a complete list of pharmacies offering walk-in vaccinations.

"In addition to receiving your annual flu shot, we have also taken extra steps to ensure our pharmacies and health care departments are well-stocked to handle flu-related prescriptions and over-the-counter needs," added Beckner.
