MINNEAPOLIS — Supervalu on Wednesday announced the supermarket chain had plenty of shingles vaccinations on hand, despite current reports about a shortage of the vaccinations.

The company has more than 2,100 specially trained and certified immunization pharmacists across its nationwide network of stores. Supervalu pharmacies have been providing adult immunizations since 2000 for many vaccine-preventable diseases, the retail pharmacy operator added, including influenza, pneumococcal disease, tetanus/diphtheria/pertussis, hepatitis A, hepatitis B, cervical cancer, and meningococcal meningitis.

Consumers can call 1-800-783-0458 to find an immunizing pharmacy within the company’s family of stores nearest them, or to schedule an appointment to receive the vaccine.
