Flu season is right around the corner and Meijer pharmacies in the Valley and beyond are prepared for customers' vaccination needs.

According to a press release, Meijer pharmacies are well stocked with a full inventory of flu shots, as well as the recently FDA-approved Respiratory Syncytial Virus (RSV) shot for adults age 60 and older and 15 other available vaccinations.

RSV is a common respiratory virus that usually causes mild cold-like symptoms. While most people recover within a week or so, RSV can be serious in infants and older adults.

"Meijer is more than a grocery store. Millions of people trust us each year to support their health and wellness needs and these vaccinations are just one of the many ways we're here for them," said Meijer Group Vice President of Pharmacy, Jacky Morse.

All Meijer pharmacies will also be offering the annual COVID-19 vaccination later in the fall following approval from the FDA as well a vaccines for shingles, pneumonia, whooping cough, meningitis and tetanus year round.

You can schedule an appointment by texting VACCINE to 75049, calling your local store or scheduling online. Walk-ins are also welcome.
