Giant Food announced today that flu shots are once again available at all of its in-store pharmacies for both adults and children. The vaccinations are administered by Giant’s certified in-store pharmacists and are often covered in-full by most insurance plans.

“Giant welcomes everyone to come speak to one of our pharmacists about flu shots and how to stay healthy this winter,” said Paul Zvaleny, Giant Food Director of Pharmacy Operations. “The flu season is quickly approaching, and it’s important to begin thinking about vaccinations as early as possible as a preventative measure.”

To help customers stay healthy throughout flu season, Giant Food makes getting your vaccination exceptionally easy. No appointment is needed and insurance companies, including Medicare, are billed directly, often at $0 copays.

Standard flu shots are available, including “quad” and high dose vaccines. Consult with your pharmacist on appropriate dosing based on age. In addition, customers getting vaccinated will also receive a free coupon book with more than $28 in savings for items and services at Giant Food.

As part of Giant Food’s ongoing effort to support the wellbeing of customers, Giant also offers free vaccination reviews. These short questionnaires, facilitated by the in-store pharmacist, are designed to determine if you are missing any recommended vaccinations.

For more information, or to schedule an onsite flu clinic for your office, please call 800-950-4678. To find the Giant Food pharmacy nearest to you, please visit
