Date:9/15/2011

STILLWATER, Minn., Sept. 15, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- To ensure its customers remain healthy this flu season, SUPERVALU INC. (NYSE: SVU), parent company of Cub Pharmacy, has specially trained immunizing pharmacists available now at nearly all pharmacy locations. This level of access, coupled with an ample supply of flu vaccine makes it easier than ever to get vaccinated at Cub Pharmacy.

Specially trained and certified pharmacists are currently available to administer the traditional flu vaccine, needle free FluMist® nasal spray and the Fluzone® high dose for patients ages 65 and older during regular pharmacy hours. Cub's 69 pharmacy locations will be able to provide flu vaccinations daily, on a walk-in basis. In addition, some stores without pharmacies will host walk-in flu shot clinics. Contact your local store or visit www.supervalupharmacies.com for details.

The vaccine is reasonably priced at $28.99 for either the traditional shot or the FluMist®. Fluzone® HD is available for $59.99. This cost is covered by Medicare Part B and many commercial health plans, which means many customers may not incur out-of-pocket expenses.

In addition, customers who receive a flu shot at a Cub Pharmacy location will receive a coupon book, worth $45 or more in savings, and a small sample bag with items that contribute to a healthier cough, cold and flu season; restrictions may apply. These products are available while supplies last.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) believe so strongly in the value of the flu vaccine that their experts recommend it for everyone over the age of 6 months and especially for higher risk populations including seniors and people with chronic health conditions.

To make an appointment for a flu shot, customers can call 800-783-0458 or visit a nearby pharmacy.

SUPERVALU Pharmacies® operate in 25 states under 10 retail brands, including  Acme Sav-on Pharmacy, Albertsons Sav-on Pharmacy, Albertsons Osco Pharmacy, Cub Pharmacy, Farm Fresh Pharmacy, Jewel-Osco Pharmacy, Shaw's Osco Pharmacy, Shop 'n Save Pharmacy, Shop 'n Save Osco Pharmacy and Shoppers Pharmacy. Shots will not be administered at Save-A-Lot or Hornbacher's.
