HOFFMAN ESTATES, Ill., Sept. 16, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- During flu season and especially now, given the current pandemic, health officials recommend that everyone six months of age and older receive a flu shot in order to prevent the flu and avoid additional strain on the medical system. Fortunately, Kmart pharmacies are here to help by providing no cost* (with most insurance) flu shots in a safe environment, and additional Shop Your Way® member benefits to those who participate. To ensure patient safety, Kmart pharmacists are following all CDC guidelines for immunizing during a pandemic.
"The single best way to prevent the flu is to get a flu vaccine each season. We encourage every individual and family to be protected, especially after the severity of recent flu seasons," said Jennifer Speares Lehman, registered pharmacist and Divisional Vice President for Kmart Pharmacy. "It's more important than ever for patients to use their local pharmacy to get a flu shot to help alleviate the potential strain on other medical professionals during the season," she added.
"Our goal is to keep everyone healthy this season while also giving back to our members who can earn rewards for each flu shot purchased and prescription filled. Our immunization-certified pharmacists truly care about the well-being of our members, and they do their very best to provide information and advice on health and wellness. They're personable, approachable and professional, and that's why Kmart Pharmacy is consistently recognized for exceptional customer service."
