Giant Food logo

Landover, Maryland-based Giant Food has announced that 14 pharmacy locations throughout Maryland and Virginia are offering on-site testing for flu A and B strains and strep throat for people 3 years of age and older.

Giant’s flu and strep throat testing joins its other medical services, including COVID-19 antibody testing and immunizations including updated COVID-19 bivalent boosters, all as part of the retailer’s effort to expand point-of-care testing access.

Testing is administered by the grocer’s in-store pharmacists or certified technicians and results will be received within 10 minutes. If further consultation is needed, Giant Pharmacy offers an optional telehealth visit with a healthcare provider through Physician 360 ($29.95 fee applies payable to Physician 360 with discount code “GIANT”) to receive a consultation and any needed prescriptions, without leaving the pharmacy.

“Giant Food is committed to helping our customers by being a one-stop solution for not just their food needs, but also as part of their whole wellness package. By offering these new testing services, we are enabling customers to get their results instantly, speak to a doctor, and receive their medicine without ever leaving a Giant Pharmacy,” said Paul Zvaleny, director of pharmacy operations.

“Our Giant Pharmacy team is committed to keeping our communities in good health and we continue to keep our flu and cold products stocked for customers during this time of year when seasonal illness is often at a high.”

The cost of flu testing is $39.99, and the cost of strep throat testing is $29.99, though these fees may be FSA/HSA eligible and patients are encouraged to contact their plan provider for more information.

Patients are required to make an appointment online. Those under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian.
