RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - Considering last year's flu season, retailers are stocking their shelves in anticipation. But why pay more if you don't have to?
The flu shot will be a bargain within itself this year. It covers three different flu strains including H1-N1, so there's only one vaccine.
That shot will cost $30 at CVS, Westbury Pharmacy and Walgreens. At CVS, you can call to make an appointment or sign up at cvs.com. Walgreens started a new program -- you can buy a flu shot gift card that can be sent to anyone, anywhere in the country.
An even better deal is at IVNA on Monument Avenue. Adults over 18 can get a shot for $28. Buying at IVNA helps support their home care services for the uninsured in our area.
The grocery stores are luring customers in pursuit of a flu-less fall. Martins and Kroger are both offering the shot for $25. Martin's walk-in clinics will open Monday September 13 and vaccines are currently available at Kroger. Rite Aid matches the grocers at $25, but adds the incentive of more than one hundred dollars worth of store coupons.
But the stores giving you the best bargain on your flu shot are Walmart and Sam's Club. Your final cost here is $24. Certain stores will be operating clinics starting at 11 a.m. and you don't need an appointment.
Many of these providers accept Medicare and private insurance and some stores require a prescription for children, so you may want to call ahead to check.
