VACCINATIONS IN THE WAREHOUSE
Pharmacy INFLUENZA, OR THE FLU, is a virus that can cause serious illness. The flu is pread by coughing, sneezing and touch- ing contaminated surfaces. The flu can
make anyone sick, but certain people
have a higher risk of getting severely ill
from it. This includes:
; Adults 65 years or older
; Pregnant women
; Anyone with a chronic condition
such as heart disease, asthma
The influenza vaccine, or flu shot, is
one of the best ways to protect you and
your family from catching the flu. Flu shots
prime your body to fight off the flu before
you get sick. Everyone who is 6 months or
older should get a flu shot every season,
according to the National Centers for
Disease Control and Prevention.
Several types of flu shots are available
at Costco pharmacies for as little as
$14.99. No appointment is needed. Call or
stop by your local Costco Pharmacy to
check availability. Vaccine and age restrictions vary by state. Costco provides immunizations to children 9 years and older.
