The key to protection from the flu is getting the immunization at the right time.

“Getting vaccinated early in the season helps reduce the spread of the flu and lessens the symptoms and severity of the flu if someone becomes exposed to the virus. We encourage you to beat the rush and protect yourself and your community by getting a flu shot today.” said Billy Chow, vice president of pharmacy at Bartell Drugs.

Bartell’s pharmacists are prepared to help protect communities now with a full stock of flu vaccines Flu illnesses, doctor’s visits and missed work or school due to the flu are all factors that can be avoided with proper vaccination. The CDC recommends that everyone 6 months and older get their flu vaccine before the end of October to prevent the spread of flu before the season begins. Bartell’s pharmacy can accommodate anyone 3 years of age and older.

It has been reported that some people don’t get vaccinations for themselves or their loved ones because they perceive inconveniences or obstacles associated with getting a flu shot. Bartell Drugs makes it easy. Flu shots are available at any time, without an appointment, during regular pharmacy hours at all 68 neighborhood locations. To expedite the flu vaccination process, Bartell’s encourages all customers to visit bartelldrugs.com/flu-form to register themselves prior to visiting the pharmacy.

As a convenience for local businesses or retirement housing communities with 25 or more employees or residents, Bartell Drugs offers an on-site flu clinic program. For businesses, that want to decrease lost productivity and time due to sickness, the program provides an opportunity for employees to conveniently get their flu shot. For retirement housing communities, the program helps residents protect themselves and those around them, some of whom may be at higher risk from complications associated with the flu.
