Starting today, Kroger is partnering with The Salvation Army and Feeding America to offer free flu shots to thousands of uninsured and underinsured individuals.
Customers interested in the free vaccine should stop by their local Salvation Army of Feeding America food bank to pick up a flu shot voucher. They’re good at Kroger stores or a Kroger banner pharmacy such as City Market, Dillons, Jay C, Fred Meyer, Fry’s, King Soopers, QFC, Ralphs and Smith’s.
Every year 5 -20 % of Americans get the flu, while more than 200,000 people are hospitalized from flu-related complications, and about 36,000 people die from flu-related causes.
The Salvation Army and our partners are committed to promoting health and wellness and hope these vouchers will help protect many families and individuals this season.
