Food City pharmacy offers seasonal flu vaccine
Food City officials announced they'll be providing the seasonal flu vaccine this season which provides protection against the most common strains of influenza.
Vaccinations are available on a walk-up basis at Food City immunizing pharmacies and will continue throughout the season, based upon availability.
While everyone is encouraged to receive a flu shot, the CDC classifies the following as high risk for Influenza: people 65 or older, residents of long-term care facilities, people 2 to 64 years of age with more than one disease, pregnant women, and healthcare personnel who provide direct patient care or household contacts and out-of-home caregivers of children under 6 months of age.
Food City Pharmacists can vaccinate people 14 years and older. Insurance, including Medicare Part B, will be accepted, many with a zero copay.
Officials say flu viruses are most common during the fall and winter months.
