CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Seasonal flu shots will be available at all Harris Teeter stores beginning Sept. 1.

Harris Teeter will be working in cooperation with Mollen Immunization Clinics to offer flu shots in all 199 stores for at least two four-hour periods beginning Sept. 1.

Flu shots will be available to all Harris Teeter customers for just $25 each with their VIC card, or at no charge if they are a Medicare Part B, non-HMO recipient (just present your card before receiving your shot).

New this year is the option for the clinic nurse to bill insurances directly. Just ask if your provider is included. The pneumococcal vaccine is also available for $60.

Shoppers should note that they must be a minimum of 4 years old to receive the flu shot and over the age of 65 or have certain health conditions to receive the pneumonia vaccine.

Registered nurses with Mollen will administer the shots in a temporary clinic set up inside Harris Teeter stores. Clinic information will be posted at the entrance to all stores and at harristeeter.com or just ask an associate for the schedule.
