The Giant Co., based in Carlisle, Pennsylvania, said that flu vaccinations are now available at all 132 Giant and Martin’s in-store pharmacies. Giant and Martin’s pharmacists again will offer drive-up flu vaccinations in select store parking lots 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 for The Giant Co. “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. 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. Flu shots are administered by immunizing Giant and Martin’s pharmacists, subject to state regulations.

Beginning Sept. 8 and running through Oct. 2, select Giant and Martin’s pharmacies will 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 online.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends that everyone 6 months and older get a flu vaccination. While the CDC recommends flu shots by the end of October for everyone over 6 months, certain groups of people are at greater risk for complications from the flu. These groups include: people with diabetes, pregnant women, adults over 65, children under 5, those with asthma and other chronic lung diseases, those with kidney and liver disorders, heart disease patients and those with compromised immune systems.

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.
