HOFFMAN ESTATES, Ill., Sept. 18, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Kmart Pharmacy makes it easy for customers and Shop Your Way members to stay healthy this flu season by conveniently offering flu shots in stores for as low as $24.99. Shop Your Way members who receive their vaccination can also get a $5 Kmart gift card with coupon* available in select circulars and online at KmartPharmacy.com/flu.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, children and adults, especially older people, young children, pregnant women, and people with certain health conditions, should begin receiving vaccinations now to ensure as many people as possible are protected before flu season begins.** Flu season occurs in the fall and winter, usually peaking in January or February, but occurring as early as October and as late as May.
"Preparing for flu season early is important, but we realize families are busy this time of year," said Dain Rusk, vice president and general manager of Pharmacy for Sears Holdings. "We encourage families to take this important step to protect their health, and Kmart Pharmacy makes it easy to just walk-in and check it off your list."
No appointment is necessary, and most major health insurance plans cover the flu shot.
According to Rusk, patients may also want to explore high dose flu vaccines (recommended by CDC for patients over 65) or quadrivalent flu vaccines, and your local Kmart pharmacist can help you explore your needs. Patients should also consider getting immunized against other infectious diseases, such as pneumonia, combined tetanus, diphtheria and whooping cough, meningitis and shingles. Kmart Pharmacists are trained and qualified to advise and administer all of these vaccinations.
Kmart Pharmacy provides expert customer service, including free home delivery of prescriptions, auto-refill, online ordering and the Kmart Pharmacy App. For more information on all the Kmart Pharmacy savings, visit www.KmartPharmacy.com.
