Flu Vaccinations Available at Barrington Jewel-Osco Pharmacy
To help ensure its Barrington customers remain healthy this flu season, JEWEL-OSCO, now has specially trained immunizing pharmacists available at its Main Street pharmacy and all of its pharmacies. This level of access, coupled with an ample supply of flu vaccine makes it easier than ever to get vaccinated at any JEWEL-OSCO pharmacy.
The flu vaccine can be administered as the traditional flu shot, needle-free FluMist® nasal spray and the Fluzone® high dose for patients ages 65 and older, during regular pharmacy hours. JEWEL-OSCO pharmacies will provide flu vaccinations daily, on a walk-in basis, and all of its area pharmacies are open seven days a week.
The vaccine is priced at $28.99 for either the traditional shot or the FluMist®. Fluzone® HD is available for $59.99. This cost is covered by Medicare Part B and many commercial health plans, which means that many customers may not incur out-of-pocket expenses.
In addition, customers who receive the flu vaccine at JEWEL-OSCO will receive a coupon book, worth $45 or more in savings, and a small sample bag of products to help maintain good health through the cough, cold and flu season. These added items are available while supplies last.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends the flu vaccine for everyone six months of age and over and especially for higher-risk populations including seniors and people with chronic health conditions. To make an appointment for a flu vaccination, customers can call (800) 783-0458, visit their nearby JEWEL-OSCO pharmacy, or go to www.jeweloscopharmacies.com for more details.
