JEWEL-OSCO PHARMACY Offers Grocery Savings to Flu Shot Customers
Date:9/14/2009

ITASCA, Ill., Sept. 14 /PRNewswire/ -- This flu season, an ounce of prevention can amount to big savings at the JEWEL-OSCO grocery checkout.

Starting today, customers who get a seasonal flu shot at a JEWEL-OSCO pharmacy will receive a special invitation to save a total of 20 percent off on a future grocery shopping trip, simply by taking additional steps to avoid serious complications that can result from certain other illnesses or health conditions.

"This savings opportunity is our way of showing that it really does pay to take care of your health," said Pharmacist Jeff Bregar, RPh, manager, Integrated Clinical Services, JEWEL-OSCO PHARMACY.

This season, JEWEL-OSCO will offer flu shots at $24.99, a competitive value in the current market. Specially trained JEWEL-OSCO pharmacists are available to administer flu shots to customers by appointment or on a walk-in basis between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m., weekdays and weekends. Evening appointments are available during regular JEWEL-OSCO PHARMACY hours, and select 24-hour pharmacy locations can provide flu shots around the clock.

After receiving a seasonal flu shot, customers will receive a 20 percent discount coupon when they take advantage of any one of the following services that can help jump-start or renew plans for a healthier lifestyle (some restrictions apply):

  • Transfer or fill a new prescription at JEWEL-OSCO PHARMACY
  • Receive another immunization, including the vaccines that can prevent pneumonia, shingles, tetanus or meningitis
  • Complete a private medication review with a JEWEL-OSCO pharmacist
  • Complete JEWEL-OSCO's Tools for Living Healthy With Diabetes education program
  • Receive an in-store health screening for cholesterol, thyroid dysfunction (TSH), prostate cancer (PSA), blood glucose or A1C

JEWEL-OSCO pharmacy services are competitively priced. Medicare Part B and many prescription insurance plans are accepted, and may cover most pharmacy services, including flu shots.

"While the opportunity for immediate grocery savings can be significant to many of our customers, the long-term benefits of health maintenance and preventative care measures are far greater," Bregar said. "Good health is priceless."

In addition to the grocery savings offer, customers will also receive a flu, cough and cold survival kit (while supplies last). The kit, valued at $30, includes free samples, coupons and tips for staying healthy during the upcoming cold and flu season.

The grocery savings opportunity is an extension of JEWEL-OSCO PHARMACY's commitment to building healthier communities, one individual at a time.

Specially-trained JEWEL-OSCO pharmacists are now available to administer seasonal flu shots and other in-store clinical pharmacy services. Customers can schedule an appointment or get more information by calling (800) 783-0458, or visiting: www.jeweloscopharmacies.com.
