Rite Aid discounts flu shots in support of National Influenza Vaccination Week

BY Michael Johnsen

CAMP HILL, Pa. – From Dec. 2 through 12, Rite Aid will offer discounts on select trivalent flu shots in support of National Influenza Vaccination Week. Flucelvax, a cell based vaccine, will be available for $32.99, and the standard trivalent flu shot for $26.99, a discount of $5. 
 
“According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, flu vaccination coverage from previous years has shown that influenza vaccination activity declines quickly after November,” said Jocelyn Konrad, Rite Aid EVP pharmacy. “National Influenza Week is a great time to reinforce the importance of receiving your flu shot and to encourage our customers who haven’t done so already to visit their local Rite Aid and conveniently get vaccinated against the flu, as it is the best way to protect yourself and others from this potentially serious illness.”
 
Rite Aid’s Vaccine Central, an assessment tool where visitors can complete a personal immunization evaluation, is an additional resource for people to further review immunization recommendations. By visiting Vaccine Central, customers can track their personal immunization history and find other educational resources on immunizations. 
 
Created by the CDC in 2005, National Influenza Vaccination Week is a national observance that was established to highlight the importance of continuing influenza vaccination, as well as fostering greater use of flu vaccine after the holiday season into January and beyond.
 
The CDC recommends a yearly flu vaccine for everyone 6 months of age and older as the first and most important step in protecting against this serious disease. 
 
Rite Aid pharmacists are available to administer vaccinations for 12 other diseases, such as pertussis (whooping cough), shingles and pneumonia, subject to state regulations.
