Harris Teeter Offers Flu Shots October 8th - November 11th
Customers can take advantage of discount flu shots with their VIC card and stay healthy this flu season.

Flu shots will be available at your neighborhood food market October 8th through November 11th.

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. 

 

Harris Teeter will be working in cooperation with Virginia Healthcare Screenings (VHS) to offer flu shots in our Pharmacy stores for at least one four-hour period during the month. Flu shots will be available to all Harris Teeter customers for just $30 each, $27 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). The first two weeks will be reserved for high risk patients only, VHS will monitor and screen for these patients.

 

Licensed nurses with VHS 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 and at www.harristeeter.com or just ask an associate for the schedule. During these clinics Pneumonia vaccine shots will also be available for $40 each. A number system will be implemented during the clinic.  This will help ensure that customers receive their shots in a timely manner.

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.
