Date:9/4/2009

MINNEAPOLIS, Sept. 4 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Target(R) announces that flu vaccinations are now available at all 22 Target Clinic locations in Minnesota. 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 of, 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 Minnesota and supported by the Fairview network of physicians.
