Kmart Pharmacy Announces Availability of Flu Shots at Walk-In Flu Clinics
Date:9/20/2010

HOFFMAN ESTATES, Ill., Sept. 20 /PRNewswire/ -- With flu season just around the corner, Kmart  announces that its 2010 annual walk-in flu clinics are now open through Nov. 15. Customers can receive their seasonal flu vaccination for $25, while supplies last, at any of the more than 900 Kmart Pharmacy walk-in flu clinic locations. Flu shots are administered by a trained practitioner and are free for those covered by Medicare Part B. Those who purchase a flu vaccination will also receive a coupon book with up to $45 and a 10 percent off shopping pass valid through Dec. 4 on edibles, health and/or beauty care purchases.

"Following a 2009 flu season that saw significant outbreaks, including the H1N1 virus, Kmart Pharmacy is encouraging customers to get their vaccinations early in the season, especially since there is an incubation period before becoming fully effective," said Robb Ayshford, divisional vice president, pharmacy administration for Kmart. "The Kmart Pharmacy walk-in flu clinics are family friendly, have knowledgeable on-site pharmacists that can answer flu and health related questions and carry a range of supplies to help customers stay healthy during the winter season."

While the start of flu season often hits its peak in November, vaccinations are typically provided in September and October for early prevention. Kmart Pharmacy recommends early vaccinations because everyone's system reacts differently to the shot. For most people, antibodies that protect against influenza viruses develop approximately two weeks after vaccination. This year's vaccine will protect against 2009 H1N1, and two other influenza viruses (an H3N2 virus and an influenza B virus).

Recognizing that everyone has different needs when it comes to health, Kmart Pharmacy will now also offer a new Fluzone High-Dose vaccine for $45, which is specially developed for people 65 years and ol
