    Kroger also does free flu shots. That's where I got mine. You can go online to fill out all the paperwork and set up an appointment.

    Making an appointment online with Publix is really easy.

    I’d rather someone tell me they’re not getting one because it makes their arm hurt than someone tell me one more time they didn’t get the flu last year when they didn’t get the shot.

    I read online if you rub the area of injection and rotate you arm in a circle that it helps a lot with it. I did it this year and it worked. Arm still got sore but not as much and didn’t last nearly as long.

    I've had flu shots that didn't hurt at all and some that hurt for days. I've been told it can have something to do with how the shot is administered

    Got mine last Friday at Fry’s. Took 15 minutes. First time I’ve gotten one in maybe 10-15 years but I definitely felt obligated to do it given everything going on. I’m only a selfish prick 70% of the time.

    Made my appt at Publix for Noon and ordered a sub for pickup at 12:15 Got there a few minutes before noon, had the shot at 12:04. Perused beer aisle for a few minutes before choosing. sandwich was ready by time I got to deli.

    just got home with a free sandwich and essentially a $5 six pack

    The total before she put in my insurance was $48. Not sure what they charge the insurance company, but I didn't spend $48 today in the store

    usually get the shot in my office, but it’s been closed since March. Will probably stick with Publix if they keep the $10 gift card next year

    About to go get one over lunch I think. Usually never have issues after it, but between the shot and the temp decreasing 50+ degrees in the last 10 days I’m expecting to “get sick”. Wish me luck.

    They've done for the past few years. 48 is the cash price for the flu shot and 96 for the senior dose.

    Just a heads up we are having trouble getting the regular flu shot in, but not the senior dose, so if you are still on the fence you might want to go get it.

    DTaP is a vaccine that helps children younger than age 7 develop immunity to three deadly diseases caused by bacteria: diphtheria, tetanus, and whooping cough (pertussis). Tdap is a booster immunization given at age 11 that offers continued protection from those diseases for adolescents and adults.”

    You got some ‘splainin to do, a.tramp.

    You are supposed to get it every 10 years as an adult. HTH as I just got this and confirmed from the pharmacist that gave me the flu shot and a nurse that I know.
