Flu Shot Sticky Note Reminder

Convenient immunization options available while you shop

BOISE, ID – August 28, 2013 – Local Albertsons pharmacies are on point to help customers have a healthy, happy winter and holiday season, because flu shots have arrived! No appointments are necessary, and Albertsons’ certified immunizing pharmacists can assist customers in determining who in their household may receive a flu shot at the pharmacy, subject to state regulations.

“A flu vaccine is one of the simplest steps that families can take to help protect themselves, their loved ones and friends during flu season,” said Dan Salemi, president of pharmacy operations. “Albertsons pharmacies have traditional flu vaccines and mists that will work for the majority of patients as well as high dose vaccines for seniors, and our professional pharmacy team can administer your flu shot quickly and easily while you’re doing your weekly shopping. Protecting your family has never been easier.”

Specially trained pharmacists are available to administer the traditional flu vaccine, needle free FluMist® nasal spray, and Fluzone Intradermal as well as Fluzone® HD for patients ages 65 and older during regular pharmacy hours with no appointment necessary.

Traditional flu vaccines, Fluzone® Intradermal or FluMist® are priced at $29.99. Fluzone® HD is available for $59.99. Many customers will find that their commercial health plans or Medicare Part B will cover the cost.

According to the Centers for Disease Control, the single best way to protect against the flu is to get vaccinated each year. While getting vaccinated is never a guarantee that a person will not contract the flu virus, those who are vaccinated and still get the flu generally experience milder symptoms and a shorter duration of illness. Stop by your local Albertsons pharmacy for more information or to get your flu shot today.

    We live in Silver City, NM. We went in to get our flu shot and was told that our 13 year old daughter could not get her shot because she had to be 16. I don’t understand this because other stores do not have this requirement. Can you explain the reasoning behind not giving flu shots to anyone under 16.

      Hmm… I do know that the minimum age varies by state, Cheryl, but that doesn’t explain why some stores give the flu shot to 13 year olds and why we don’t. I have sent your question over to our Pharmacy Operations Team and someone from there will email you at the email address you provided by the end of the day Monday with more information. Thank you for your question! ~Marie

    Do you know where my adult daughter can receive an egg-less flu shot in Boise? Difficult to find so far….

      I’m sorry for the delay in response, Kathleen. Unfortunately, we currently do not offer egg-less flu shots. I wish you and your daughter the best of luck in finding what she needs. ~Marie

    Y cuando usted decide comprar una chaqueta de las veces, primero tenemos que mirar la etiqueta del producto del collar atado, terciopelo que contiene menos del 50% de la cantidad que usted tiene que prestar atención, y ya no cumple con las normas mínimas establecidas por el Estado.
