      Its the Flu shot creep, just like the Christmas creep.

      With marketing today within the next 10 years stores will just have aisles dedicated to major holidays open and stocked year round.

      Yep. I always wondered about that "Christmas in July" promotion - consumerism in its ugliest implementation.

    Rite Aid also has flu shots for $24.99. They'll also give you a nice coupon booklet with $100+ worth of coupons (which will be combinable with manufacturer's coupons for extra savings!). On their website, the fine print says that no purchase is necessary, so you might be able to just ask for one without getting the shot. Smile

    The CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) recommends getting a flu shot as early as September. The antibodies that provide protection against influenza virus infection develop in the body about 2 weeks after vaccination. They have a widget to help locate flu clinics at , but they apparently feel it's a bit early and it's not open yet.
    When to Get Vaccinated

    Yearly flu vaccination should begin in September or as soon as vaccine is available and continue throughout the influenza season, into December, January, and beyond. This is because the timing and duration of influenza seasons vary. While influenza outbreaks can happen as early as October, most of the time influenza activity peaks in January or later.

    See for key facts about seasonal flu vaccinations, including their recommendations about who should get flu shots and who should not.

    I have to because of my MS. If I didn't, someone w/the flu could just look in my direction & I'd be sick. I actually did get 1 of the shots at CVS this past year. No waiting, quick & easy & my insurance co. accepted the receipt!
