"

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.
