Target pharmacies to offer flu vaccinations

Target will be offering flu vaccinations at most Target pharmacy locations starting this week. The Center for Disease Control and Prevention recommends nearly everyone protect themselves against this potentially serious illness.

No appointments are necessary for the vaccinations. Vaccines offered will include flu vaccinations (ages 9 and up) for $29, and pneumonia vaccinations (ages 18 and up) for $45. Visit for specific times as they may vary by store. Target Pharmacy accepts many different insurance plans so the vaccinations are often covered at no out-of pocket charge to guests.

“Target wants to make flu vaccines affordable and accessible,” said Keri Jones, senior vice president of health and beauty, Target. “We are always striving to make our guests’ lives easier while keeping their families healthy. Now, Target guests can conveniently take care of themselves and their household in one visit.”
