Winn-Dixie couples flu-prevention groceries with flu shot

Promotion part of 'What-A-Deal' program

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — Winn-Dixie Stores on Wednesday upped the ante in its pursuit of administering more flu shots this year — through Sept. 20 guests who use their Customer Reward Card when getting a seasonal flu vaccination will pay a $5-discounted rate of $24.99 for the shot and will receive five free bonus grocery items — fresh fruit, orange juice, hand sanitizer, wipes and tissues — valued at $12.71.

The flu shot promotion is part of Winn-Dixie's "What-A-Deal” program for flu season for the second consecutive year.

“By offering this deal, our guests not only save money, but they also enjoy the convenience of being vaccinated by their neighborhood Winn-Dixie pharmacists with no appointment required,” stated John Fegan, Winn-Dixie's VP pharmacy.

Specifically, shoppers taking advantage of the deal will recieve a 3-lb. bag of new crop Eastern Jonamac apples, a 64-oz. container of Minute Maid orange juice, an 8-oz. bottle of Top Care hand sanitizer, a 35-count package of Winn-Dixie disinfecting wipes and a 65-count or 85-count box of Winn-Dixie facial tissues, the company stated.
