Rite Aid to deliver flu shots to commuters at Grand Central Terminal

Chain to donate $3 to Tuesday's Children for each shot administered

CAMP HILL, Pa. — Rite Aid will sponsor a flu vaccination clinic at New York's Grand Central Terminal to help prevent flu and raise money for a charity for families affected by 9/11, the retail pharmacy chain said Monday.

The "Rite Aid Shield Yourself, New York" event will take place at Grand Central's Vanderbilt Hall on Wednesday and Thursday, from the morning through the evening, with pharmacists on hand to administer shots.

For every flu shot administered at the event, Rite Aid will donate $3 to Tuesday's Children, a nonprofit that supports families of 9/11 victims and first responders. In addition, the company will distribute free donation tickets to commuters passing through the hall, donating $3 to the charity for everyone who presents a Grand Central Terminal donation ticket when purchasing a flu shot or flu shot gift card at any Rite Aid store.
