FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: January 10, 2016

SEATTLE—With cases of flu on the rise in western Washington, state and local health officials are encouraging everyone eligible to get their flu shots. The standard vaccine and/or high-dose vaccine are available at all 65 Bartell Drugs locations across the state.

Despite reports of shortages at some pharmacies, Bartells has a full stock of vaccinations on hand at all of its 65 locations in western Washington.

The Centers for Disease Control and state and local Departments of Public Health have reported a spike in flu-related hospitalizations. Pharmacists and public health officials agree that a simple flu shot is the surest way to avoid this year’s outbreak.

Bartells can vaccinate anyone ages 3 years and up. Some children up to the age of 8 years may require two shots if this is their first-time flu vaccination. Full effectiveness of the vaccine can take up to two weeks for everyone.

Flu shots are available seven days a week, including evenings and weekends at locations throughout the Puget Sound region with no appointment needed. For added convenience, Bartell customers can schedule their flu shot in advance at www.bartelldrugs.com/your-pharmacy/immunizations/flu including right from your smart phone.
