Harris Teeter Offers Flu Shots October 7th - November 10th
Customers can take advantage of discount flu shots with their VIC card and stay healthy this flu season.


Harris Teeter is doing it again; flu shots will be available at your neighborhood food market October 7th through November 10th. Providing convenient flu shot clinics allows Harris Teeter to show customers and associates how important they are to the company and help protect them from one of the winter's nastiest illnesses. In 2003 their response was tremendous, over 17,000 customers received their flu shot from their local Harris Teeter.

This year Harris Teeter will be working in cooperation with Virginia Healthcare Screenings to offer 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 $21 each, $20 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 Virginia Healthcare Screenings will administer the shots in a temporary clinic set up within the Harris Teeter stores. Clinic information will be posted at the entrance of all stores or log onto http://www.harristeeter.com/files/FluShotClinic04.pdf for a complete schedule. During these clinics Pneumonia vaccine shots will also be available for $30 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) 1-800-232-0233.
