For those who remember, getting a flu shot last season got a bit tricky when a local pharmacy ran short and left residents needing a flu shot scrambling to nearby towns.
This year residents between Blue Point and West Sayville have a new option for getting the shot. Local Stop & Shop stores are now offering flu vaccinations at all of their in-store pharmacies. No appointment is needed and vaccinations are provided any time the pharmacy is open.
The cost for the flu shot is $35 in New York and most major insurance plans along with Medicare are accepted. Customers with a Stop & Shop prescription savings card will receive $10 off the regular price of a flu shot.
For more information or to find the Stop & Shop pharmacy nearest you, please visit www.stopandshop.com. If interested in signing up for a Stop & Shop prescription savings card, ask a pharmacist on your next visit.
Local Stop& Shops are located on Sunrise Highway, west of Broadway Avenue in Sayville, and Main Street in Sayville across from Foster Avenue intersection.
