Stop & Shop To Offer Seasonal Flu Shots
Date:9/10/2009

QUINCY, Mass., Sept. 10 /PRNewswire/ -- For more than twenty years, Stop & Shop has provided seasonal flu shots as part of its Health & Wellness initiative in a continuing effort to best meet the needs of its customers during the cough and cold season . This year, Stop & Shop will offer seasonal influenza immunizations at a reduced price to Stop & Shop card holders in the pharmacy department beginning Friday, September 11 through November 26 or until quantities associated with this program last.

"As part of our continued commitment to provide value to our customers, Stop & Shop is offering seasonal flu shots for $20 when customers use their Stop & Shop card," said Jim Wonderly, vice president of pharmacy operations for Stop & Shop. "Unfortunately, many Americans are foregoing medical care because of increased costs, and we want to do our part by offering affordable immunizations during these challenging economic times."

Seasonal flu shots will be administered at a reduced price in most Stop & Shop stores starting Friday, September 11, expanding to all stores in October. Immunizations will be provided by certified and trained Stop & Shop pharmacists and through Stop & Shop's partnership with Maxim Health Systems and their trained health care professionals. The cost of the seasonal immunization is $30, but customers with a Stop & Shop loyalty card can save an additional $10. Thus, the final cost to Stop & Shop customers, with the Card, is $20.

"Last month, we introduced millions of customers to the new Stop & Shop card along with a commitment to provide them with the best possible value," said Stop & Shop Executive Vice President Jeff Martin. "With the savings Stop & Shop is offering on seasonal flu shots, we are demonstrating that ongoing value commitment as well as a commitment to the health and wellness of our customers."

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, it is important that individuals at higher risk of having serious seasonal flu complications be vaccinated each year. People who should be vaccinated include:

  • Children ages 6 months to 19 years
  • Pregnant women
  • People 50 years of age and older
  • People with certain chronic medical conditions
  • People who live in nursing homes and other long-term care facilities
  • People who live in or care for those at high risk for complications from flu including health care workers, household contacts of persons at high risk, and household contacts and out-of-home caregivers of children less than 6 months of age

Influenza, more commonly known as the seasonal flu, is a contagious respiratory disease that peaks in the winter, typically December through March. Each year millions of Americans are affected by the seasonal flu. For more information about the seasonal flu, visit the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and Prevention's website at www.cdc.gov.

Additionally, Stop & Shop is working closely with local and state officials and the CDC, to prepare for the eventual administration of the H1N1 ("swine") flu vaccine.

Customers interested in receiving seasonal flu immunizations at their local Stop & Shop can talk to their pharmacist, visit Stop & Shop's website at www.stopandshop.com, or obtain additional information by calling (800) 767-7772 Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
