Students in need of a flu shot can visit a Target pharmacy for a free vaccination.
According to the Pleasanton Unified School District January Health Update:
"Target store pharmacies are offering free flu shots for students ages 4-17, through January 31. We urge you to take advantage of this offer. Stores prefer you access this free service between the hours of 9:00am-1:15pm or 3:15-6:30pm."
Sara Garcia representing the "Shoo the Flu" website wrote via email:
"The program will run though the end of Jan or until supplies last."
Check shootheflu.org for locations to find the free flu shots near you. A representative from the Target pharmacy in Dublin says they recommend calling the pharmacy first to confirm there are flu shots in stock. Right now, the Dublin locations are out of stock due to the recent high demand for the vaccine. Find out more about the flu outbreak in the Bay Area by clicking here.
