CVS/pharmacy and MinuteClinic Reach Goal of Delivering One Million Flu Vaccinations
Date:12/8/2008

WOONSOCKET, R.I., Dec. 8 /PRNewswire/ -- Fulfilling a commitment to keep families healthy and make it easier to get a flu shot, CVS/pharmacy, the nation's largest retail pharmacy, and MinuteClinic, the largest retail health care clinic in the U.S., announced that they have surpassed a goal of delivering one million fu vaccinations during this Fall's flu shot season.

The companies, both divisions of CVS Caremark Corp. (NYSE: CVS), launched an integrated campaign on Oct. 1 which provided vaccinations to consumers at 7,500 scheduled flu shot clinic events in select CVS/pharmacy stores as well as flu shots on demand seven days a week at more than 550 MinuteClinic health care centers located in 27 states.

MinuteClinic will continue to provide flu shots to adults and children during the CDC's National Influenza Vaccination Week (Dec. 8-14) and on a daily basis during the holidays and throughout the flu season which can run as late as April. To find the nearest MinuteClinic, go to www.minuteclinic.com.

"We are delighted that through the combined efforts of CVS/pharmacy and MinuteClinic we have delivered more than one million vaccinations to children and adults, which is the best step to ensure protection against the flu," said Papatya Tankut, R.Ph. Vice President of Pharmacy Professional Services at CVS/pharmacy.

However, a nationwide survey conducted by CVS in September found that only half of adults (50 percent) planned to get a flu shot this year. Among those who do regularly get a shot, 55 percent wait until a normally scheduled visit to their doctor or health care provider.*

"Right now, flu activity in most parts of the country is sporadic according to the CDC, so there is still time to obtain a flu shot," said Donna Haugland,
