CVS Pharmacy reminds patients it's not too late to get a flu shot, as flu activity increases statewide
WOONSOCKET, R.I., Jan. 9, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- As the number of cases of the flu continues to rise in Washington, CVS Pharmacy is encouraging residents to get their flu shots. The standard vaccine and/or high-dose vaccine are available at CVS Pharmacy locations across the state, including the 30 pharmacies located in Target stores, while supplies last.
Governor Jay Inslee and First Lady Trudi Inslee visited the CVS Pharmacy in Target in Olympia on Friday morning to receive their flu vaccines and urged people who haven't received a flu shot to do so. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), seasonal flu activity typically peaks in January and February, so it is not too late to get a flu vaccine. In addition, if you haven't yet been vaccinated and have already gotten sick with a flu virus this season, a flu vaccine can still protect you from other strains of the flu, further stressing the importance of getting vaccinated.
Flu shots are available seven days a week, including evenings and weekends at locations in Washington with no appointment needed. For added convenience, CVS Pharmacy customers can schedule their flu shot in advance using the Immunization Scheduler at CVS.com.
