Speaking of Flu Shots...

This just in from our local JDRF enewsletter...

You and your family can receive flu shots at many locations, including your local Walgreens store. Walgreens--which is forging close ties to JDRF--will conduct flu clinics starting in early September.

Anyone can set up an appointment or walk in whenever an immunizing pharmacist is on duty; all stores have at least one immunizing pharmacist. The cost/shot is $24.99, and Walgreens will also have a needle-free option for $29.99 and a preservative-free vaccine for $29.99. In Walgreens stores where the pharmacist is Blue Cross Blue Shield-credentialed, flu shots will be free for those covered by BCBS.
