Date:9/19/2007

Annual Vaccination Program Begins October 1, 2007

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 CVS.com online Store Finder to locate a CVS/pharmacy flu shot clinic in their area.

"The annual flu shot clinics at CVS/pharmacy are part of our commitment to help communities stay healthy," said Papatya Tankut, R.Ph., Vice President of Pharmacy Professional Services at CVS/pharmacy. "By offering convenient locations for flu vaccinations, we're providing additional opportunities for people across the country to get vaccinated before the peak flu season begins."

The Centers for Disease Control recommends a yearly flu vaccination especially for people ages 50 and older, people with chronic diseases such as diabetes, asthma and heart disease, and health care providers. Last year, nearly 400,000 people received flu shots at CVS/pharmacy.

Age restrictions and the cost of a flu shot at CVS/pharmacy will vary by location. Vaccines for Medicare Part B beneficiaries who present their Medicare Card will be available at no charge, provided they have not assigned their Medicare benefits to a private Health Maintenance Organization.
