With the CDC urging everyone 6 months and older to get a flu vaccination by the end of October, Stop & Shop has announced that flu shots are now available at its more than 200 pharmacy locations across the Northeast. Customers in need of a COVID-19 vaccine or Pfizer COVID-19 boosters can enjoy the convenience of being vaccinated against the flu and COVID-19 during their Stop & Shop Pharmacy visit, as the CDC has indicated that these vaccines may be administered alongside one another with no need for a waiting period. Stop & Shop is taking extensive health and safety precautions at its pharmacies and has secured additional stock of the flu vaccine, anticipating higher demand as a result of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
Stop & Shop has enhanced its health and safety protocols for vaccinations at all of its pharmacies. To receive a flu, COVID-19, or other vaccines, customers will be required to wear face covering, and pharmacists will be equipped with face coverings and gloves. The immunization area will have strict disinfecting and sanitization measures in place between each patient.
“Stop & Shop is ready to take care of its communities this flu season,” shares Katie Thornell, Director of Pharmacy at Stop & Shop. “We are well-stocked and offer same-day immunizations without appointments. While prices associated with vaccinations are dependent upon customers’ insurance plans, most flu shots end up being low or no-cost. Stop & Shop aims to make it easy for everyone to get the care they need this fall.”
Stop & Shop offers several types of flu vaccines, and its licensed, trained, and trusted pharmacists can help each patient select the type that is best for them to address any concerns about allergies, preservatives, or potential adverse effects. Stop & Shop pharmacies also have an ample supply of COVID-19 vaccines, Pfizer COVID-19 boosters, shingles, pneumonia, and tetanus vaccines available, and customers should consult their local Stop & Shop pharmacist on all other immunizations that may be available and valuable to them and their families.
