Seasonal Flu Vaccinations Available Now at Target Clinics in Maryland
Date:9/4/2009

BALTIMORE, Sept. 4 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Target(R) announces that flu vaccinations are now available at all six Target Clinic locations in Maryland. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends nearly everyone protect themselves against this potentially serious illness.

No appointment is necessary for the vaccinations, which are available daily at Target Clinic locations during Clinic hours, including weekday evenings and weekends, through the end of flu season. Vaccines offered will include flu vaccinations (ages 18 months and up) starting at only $24. In addition, a pneumonia vaccination will also be available (ages 11 and up) for $35. Visit target.com/flushot for specific Clinic location and times as they may vary by store. Target Clinics accept many different insurance plans so the vaccinations are often covered at no out-of pocket charges to guests.

"Target Clinics are a convenient, affordable option for parents looking to keep themselves and their families healthy this flu season," said Keri Jones, senior vice president, Target. "By offering vaccinations and the treatment of flu symptoms with no appointment necessary, Target aims to make parent's lives a little easier."

Annually in the United States, more than 200,000 people are hospitalized from flu complications. Yearly flu vaccinations are recommended to begin as early as September, or as soon as the vaccine is available. Older people, young children and people with certain health conditions are at high risk for serious flu complications. Guests can refer to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (cdc.gov) for more information about flu shot candidates.

Although it does not protect against H1N1, the seasonal flu vaccine is essential to protecting families and is recommended by the CDC. An H1N1 vaccine is currently being produced and distributed by the federal and state government.

Target Clinic provides fast, on-the-spot medical care, including services for minor illnesses and injuries and immunizations, which are administered by highly trained nurse practitioners and physician assistants. Providers are licensed by the state of Maryland and supported by the GBMC network of physicians.

Also, beginning September 20, flu shots will be available at Target Pharmacy locations in Maryland. The flu shot will be administered by the pharmacist and is available to guests anytime during pharmacy hours. Contact your local Target pharmacist or visit target.com/flushot for age requirements, hours and locations.

Target Pharmacy offers several convenient programs to keep guests and their families healthy throughout the year such as ClearRx, a first-of-its kind prescription system, free flavoring options and the Target $4 Generics program. In addition, Target continues to help guests save with their Pharmacy Rewards program. Guests who fill 10 prescriptions with their Target REDcard will receive a 10 percent off shopping day at Target.
