Kroger Health, the healthcare division of The Kroger Co., is urging customers to get vaccinated against the flu this month to ensure protection during peak flu season.

“The first step in protecting yourself and others from the flu is to get vaccinated,” said Doug Cornelius, RPh, senior director, pharmacy operations, Kroger Health. “We are encouraging people to get their flu vaccine now to protect them throughout the holidays and the winter season, when we typically experience a spike in cases.”

The CDC recommends individuals get vaccinated by the end of October for peak flu protection.1 From 2010 to 2020, the CDC estimates the flu impacted at least 9 million people annually in the United States, resulting in up to 710,000 hospitalizations each year.2

Kroger Health is dedicated to providing protection from influenza in the communities it serves to help people live healthier lives. Eligible customers will receive a $5 Kroger Family of Companies coupon redeemable on groceries after the flu vaccine is administered at a Kroger Family of Companies pharmacy or The Little Clinic until November 5.

Both high-dose flu vaccines, which are primarily focused to provide extra protection for senior citizens, and regular dose flu vaccines are available at Kroger Family of Companies pharmacies in more than 2,200 locations and 226 The Little Clinic locations. Updated COVID-19 boosters are also available by appointment or walk-in. Vaccinations for the flu and COVID-19 are safe and effective when paired together.

  1. I am frequent shopper at pleasant hill Kroger at Norcross, Georgia. I had Flu shot on Friday the 21st but my $5.00 reward I have to go through so many applications online. We both almost gave it up processing at pharmacies employee due to too many information that I have to fill out. To make it easier for you to consider this matter, take a look at your competitors Publix makes easier for the flu shot recipients where they honored the gift card at the store after shot is done. We discussed this intricated processing for reward program with employee and I are not satisfied about your organization online services. She was very patient and helpful (her name is Marissa). See if you can change the system on your software or make it simple and easier for someone who are not familiar with online processing programs. Please keep in mind all your customers are bring great revenue to your organization. Thank you. Regard. Sean Higashida
