Harris Teeter Offers Flu Shots October 6th – November 19th
Customers can take advantage of convenient flu shots with their VIC card and stay healthy this flu season.


Flu shots will be available at Harris Teeter pharmacy stores from October 6th through November 19th. 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 Preventa Health, a division of Virginia Health Screenings, 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 $25 each with their VIC card, or at no charge if you are a Medicare Part B, non-HMO recipient (just present your card before receiving your shot). FluMist vaccine is also available for $30 and pneumonia shots are available for $45. Shoppers should note that you must be a minimum of 8 years old to receive the flu shot and a minimum of 2 years old to receive the FluMist vaccine.

Registered nurses with Preventa will administer the shots in a temporary clinic set up within the Harris Teeter pharmacy stores. Clinic information will be posted at the Pharmacy in all stores and at www.harristeeter.com on the pharmacy page or just ask an associate for the schedule.

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 shot vaccine immunization of today is made with an inactive virus, so rest assured, the shot will not cause the flu when given.
