Rochester, New York, August 22, 2022 – The most important step to protecting yourself during the upcoming 2022-2023 flu season is getting the influenza vaccine, which is now available at all Wegmans Pharmacy locations. Getting your family ready for flu season is easy – just stop by your Wegmans Pharmacy during normal business hours or schedule an appointment online. There is no need for a prescription, and in most cases, the fee is covered in full by insurance.
The flu shot has been proven to reduce flu-related illnesses and the risk of serious flu complications that can result in hospitalization or even death. The CDC recommends everyone 6 months of age and older get a flu shot and take preventive actions like staying away from people who are sick and frequent handwashing to help slow the spread of germs.
All Wegmans Pharmacy locations now offer flu vaccines for children, adults, and seniors. Minimum age requirements for the pediatric flu immunization vary by state; contact your local Wegmans Pharmacy to learn more.
