The Chiefland Winn-Dixie Stores, Inc., will offer flu vaccinations on a walk-in basis and through a vaccine clinic from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. on Oct. 7.

Customers using their Winn-Dixie Customer Reward Card will receive a $5 discount off the $28 flu vaccine ($23 with the Customer Reward Card). Flu shots are free for most Medicare customers.

Winn-Dixie’s pharmacy is also offering a new, high dosage flu vaccine for those 65 and older for $43 with the Customer Reward Card ($48 for non-cardholders) this year. Both the regular and high dose flu vaccines provide protection against the H1N1 virus.  

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) says the most important step in protecting against the flu is to get vaccinated. The CDC recommends all people over the age of six months of age should be vaccinated each year.

Flu vaccines will be administered by certified pharmacists. No appointment is necessary.  

The Chiefland store is located at 2202 N. Young Blvd.  For more information, please call the store at 493-0839, or the pharmacy at 493-7447.
