If you are in need of a flu shot for the winter season, Kennewick's Safeway Pharmacy is offering up free flu shots.

The Department of Health is collaborating with Safeway Inc. and Albertsons Companies LLC to offer free influenza (flu) vaccination for uninsured adults over 18 years of age this flu season. A flu shot is very vital especially during the winter months to keep you safe.

Here is what the Department Of Health said about the flu shots:

 

This no-cost opportunity is offered to help prevent flu illness during the pandemic. The flu vaccine only protects against the flu virus and does not prevent, nor cause, any other respiratory infection including COVID-19 disease.

Twenty-three Albertsons and Safeway pharmacies across the state will offer flu vaccine free of charge now through June 2021, or while supplies last, to any adult who does not have health insurance.

No proof of residency or immigration status will be required. All flu vaccine recipients will be pre-screened for COVID-19 symptoms and be expected to fill out standard consent forms.

We have several locations throughout the Columbia Basin and Yakima Valley where you can get your free flu shot if you are uninsured. You can get all the details and requirements here.

Kennewick's Safeway is participating along with several other Safeway's in Yakima and Toppenish.

You can check out the complete list of Safeway and Albertsons in the area here.
