WOONSOCKET, R.I., Sept. 19 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- CVS/pharmacy today announced that it will help keep America healthy this winter by offering flu vaccinations in over 4,000 of its stores across the country. The flu shot clinics will begin in select markets on October 1, 2007 and continue through November. For dates, times and specific locations, customers may call 1-800-SHOP-CVS and choose option #1, or visit the online Store Finder to locate a CVS/pharmacy flu shot clinic in their area.
