Kroger Health Urges Customers To Get Flu Vaccinations

Kroger health

Cincinnati-based Kroger Health, the healthcare division of The Kroger Co., is urging customers to get vaccinated against the flu to ensure protection during peak flu season.

“The first step in protecting yourself and others from the flu is to get vaccinated,” said Doug Cornelius, senior director of pharmacy operations, Kroger Health. “We are encouraging people to get their flu vaccine now to protect them throughout the holidays and the winter season, when we typically experience a spike in cases.”

The CDC recommends individuals get vaccinated by the end of October for peak flu protection. From 2010-20, the CDC estimates the flu impacted at least 9 million people annually in the U.S., resulting in up to 710,000 hospitalizations each year.

Through Nov. 5, eligible customers will receive a $5 Kroger Family of Companies coupon redeemable on groceries after the flu vaccine is administered at a Kroger Family of Companies pharmacy or The Little Clinic.

Both high-dose flu vaccines, which are focused to provide extra protection for senior citizens, and regular dose flu vaccines are available in more than 2,200 locations and 226 The Little Clinic locations. Updated COVID-19 boosters are also available by appointment or walk-in. Vaccinations for the flu and COVID-19 are safe and effective when paired together.

Kroger Health, the healthcare division of The Kroger Co., has more than 2,200 pharmacies and 220 clinics in 35 states serving more than 17 million customers annually. For more information, visit kroger.com/health.
