CARLISLE, Pa. – Flu vaccinations are now available at all 132 GIANT and MARTIN’S in-store pharmacies, the GIANT Co. said Tuesday. The retailer’s pharmacists will also again offer drive-up flu vaccinations in select store parking lots beginning in September.
“Flu vaccinations are reformulated every year so the most effective way to fight the flu is by getting your flu shot annually,” said Leigh Shirley, director of pharmacy operations, The GIANT Company. “With this flu season coinciding with a surge in COVID-19 cases, it’s important for you and your family members to get the flu shot.”
Customers can visit any in-store pharmacy to receive their vaccination now, according to the company, which notes that GIANT and MARTIN’S pharmacies offer several types of flu shots for children, adults, and seniors. Most insurance plans cover flu shots at $0 copays, including Medicare Part B.
Beginning September 8 and running through October 2, select GIANT and MARTIN’S pharmacies will also offer drive-up flu vaccinations where patients can pull into a spot in the designated area of the store parking lot and be vaccinated without leaving their car. Store locations offering drive-up flu vaccinations as well as the dates and times will be available at giantfoodstores.com/pages/tgc-vaccines ormartinsfoods.com/pages/tgc-vaccines.
In addition to flu shots, Pfizer, Moderna and Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccines are available at GIANT and MARTIN’S pharmacies to adults 18 and above. COVID-19 vaccine type may vary by location. Pharmacies offering the Pfizer vaccine can administer to teens ages 12-17. Parental consent is required, and parent/guardian must be on site. The COVID-19 vaccine is administered at no out-of-pocket cost. If applicable, an appointment for the second dose will be made at the time customers receive their first dose.
