Flu Vaccinations Available at Evanston Jewel-Osco Pharmacies
To ensure its Evanston customers remain healthy this flu season, JEWEL-OSCO, now has specially trained immunizing pharmacists available at all of its pharmacy locations, including those at 1128 Chicago Ave. and 2485 Howard St. in Evanston. This level of access, coupled with an ample supply of flu vaccine makes it easier than ever to get vaccinated at any area JEWEL-OSCO pharmacy.
Specially trained and certified pharmacists are currently available to administer the traditional flu vaccine, needle-free FluMist® nasal spray and the Fluzone® high dose for patients ages 65 and older, during regular pharmacy hours. JEWEL-OSCO pharmacies will provide flu vaccinations daily, on a walk-in basis. Consumers can contact their local store or visit http://www.jeweloscopharmacies.com for details.
For added customer convenience, the Howard St, location is open 24/7, making it one of very few pharmacies in Evanston that is always available and provides immunizations at any time.
The vaccine is reasonably priced at $28.99 for either the traditional shot or the FluMist®. Fluzone® HD is available for $59.99. This cost is covered by Medicare Part B and many commercial health plans, which means that many of our customers may not incur out-of-pocket expenses.
In addition, local customers who receive a flu vaccination at their neighborhood JEWEL-OSCO will receive a coupon book, worth $45 or more in savings, and a small sample bag with items that contribute to a healthier cough, cold and flu season; restrictions may apply. These products are available now while supplies last.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends the flu vaccination for everyone over the age of six months and especially for higher-risk populations including seniors and people with chronic health conditions. To make an appointment for the vaccination, customers can call (800) 783-0458 or visit their nearby pharmacy.
