Giant-Landover begins offering flu shots for 2013-2014 season

LANDOVER, Md. – Giant Food has started offering flu vaccinations at all of its in-store pharmacies, the supermarket chain said Monday.

Giant, based in Landover, Md., and owned by Ahold USA, said customers with a Giant Pharmacy Prescription Savings Care would receive $10 off the regular price of a flu shot and that most major insurance plans and Medicare would be accepted. Also, customers will be eligible to receive a coupon book with more than $40 in savings from various vendors.

"As stewards for the nation's capital grocer, Giant Food associates have maintained their long-standing commitment to supporting the health and wellness of surrounding communities," Giant director of pharmacy operations Gayle Shields said. "The seasonal flu shots offered at scores of neighborhood stores in Maryland, Virginia, Delaware and Washington, D.C., exemplifies this promise."
