Public health officials are now encouraging everyone to get an H1N1 flu vaccine. Massachusetts, Virginia and California are among the many states that have lifted priority group restrictions, allowing all patients to be eligible to receive the shot while supplies last.

"Our customers depend on CVS/pharmacy for their health care needs, so we are pleased to be able to expand H1N1 vaccine availability to several of our stores in the States of Massachusetts and Virginia, as well in Orange County, California," said Troyen A. Brennan, M.D., Chief Medical Officer, CVS Caremark. "H1N1 flu is currently active in many communities across the country and it is likely that we will see increased flu activity, as is typically the case, in January and February."

Patients who are most at risk for contracting H1N1 and for complications resulting from the flu include pregnant women, individuals 6 months through 24 years of age, household contacts and caregivers for children younger than 6 months of age, health care and emergency medical services personnel, and persons aged 25 through 64 who have health conditions that are associated with higher risk of medical complications from influenza such as asthma and diabetes.

Information on H1N1 vaccine supply at CVS/pharmacy can be found at www.cvs.com. Vaccine availability is updated daily. The cost of the H1N1 flu vaccination shot at CVS/pharmacy is a $15 administration fee, which may be covered by insurance.
