EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. — Supervalu on Monday announced that flu vaccination services now are available across all of its pharmacy locations.

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.

Certified pharmacists currently are available to administer the traditional flu vaccine, needle-free FluMist nasal spray and the Fluzone high dose for patients ages 65 years and older during regular pharmacy hours. In addition, some of Supervalu's stores without pharmacies will host walk-in flu shot clinics.

Shots will not be administered at Save-A-Lot or Hornbacher’s, the company stated.

Flu vaccines are priced at $28.99 for either the traditional shot or 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, Supervalu noted.
