For those who remember, getting a flu shot last season got a bit tricky when local pharmacies and doctor offices ran short and left residents needing a flu shot scrambling to nearby towns.This year residents in Northport have a new option for getting the shot. Local Stop & Shop stores are now offering flu vaccinations at all of their in-store pharmacies. No appointment is needed and vaccinations are provided any time the pharmacy is open.
The cost for the flu shot is $35 in New York and most major insurance plans along with Medicare are accepted. Customers with a Stop & Shop prescription savings card will receive $10 off the regular price of a flu shot.
Local Stop & Shops are located at 3126 Jericho Tpke., East Northport and 454 Fort Salonga Rd., Northport.
