Flu Shots

Flu season is here and everyone should consider getting a flu shot this Fall. 

In the United States, flu viruses are most common during the fall and winter months. Influenza activity often begins to increase in October and November. Flu activity generally peaks between December and March and can last as late as May.

Al Hesse, King Kullen’s Pharmacy Director, recommends getting the flu vaccine early in the season, usually in the month of October. The vaccine will take up to three weeks for full immunity to protect you.

King Kullen has carried Flublok tm  in past two seasons. This vaccine contains NO virus particles, has three times the active ingredients (more than HD, or high dose, vaccines), no EGG  and meets requirements for a VEGAN diet. An added benefit from FLUBLOK; for the past few seasons seasons it has been 85% more effective than any other vaccine product! It is also covered by most insurance plans so it will not cost you more for the superior protection it offers and it’s a great choice for senior citizens.

King Kullen uses only vaccines that are either prefilled or single use, so there are no preservatives or mercury in our vaccines. This also means very little or no pain from the injection.

King Kullen Pharmacies have vaccines in stock now and there is no appointment necessary. Visit your nearest King Kullen Pharmacy and talk to our Pharmacists to get protected today!
