Harris Teeter Offers Flu Shots October 1st - November 8th
Customers can take advantage of discount flu shots with VIC card
This year people who want to get a flu shot won't have to travel far. They can just stop by their neighborhood food market October 1st through November 8th and protect themselves from one of winter's nastiest illnesses.

Harris Teeter in cooperation with Maxim Healthcare Services will be offering flu shots in all our stores for at least one four-hour period during the month. Flu shots will be available to all Harris Teeter customers for just $20 each, $19 with a VIC card, or at no charge if you are a Medicare Part B, non-HMO recipient (just present your card before receiving your shot).

Licensed nurses with Maxim Healthcare Services will administer the shots in a temporary clinic set up within the Harris Teeter stores. Customers interested in receiving the shots should check in with their local store for the schedule. Stores will also offer the Pneumonia vaccine shot for $25 each.

At Harris Teeter, we want to make it easy for our customers to stay healthy and well this flu season. And unlike flu shots given several years ago, the flu immunization of today is made with an inactive virus, so rest assured, the shot will not cause the flu when given.

To find out if you are a good candidate for the flu shot log onto the Center for Disease Control's website at http://www.cdc.gov/ncidod/diseases/flu/fluvirus.htm or call their National Immunization Hotline (English) 1-800-232-2522 or National Immunization Hotline (Spanish)
