Bi-Lo/Winn-Dixie Launches 'Shield Yourself' Campaign
To give its customers a head start in beating the flu this season, Bi-Lo/Winn-Dixie has introduced the “Shield Yourself” campaign.
Under the program, shoppers have three vaccination options: the standard vaccination, a high-dose option recommended for those 65 and older, or an intradermal flu shot administered with a microneedle that’s 90 percent smaller than traditional needles.
“Our [pharmacies offer] customers a quick, convenient and friendly environment to take control of their health and shield themselves from the virus,” said John Fegan, Bi-Lo/Winn-Dixie pharmacy VP. “Our pharmacists are ready and eager to answer any questions customers may have about which vaccine they should choose and what to expect after receiving the vaccine.”
Customers can secure a flu shot at any Bi-Lo/Winn-Dixie in-store pharmacy on a walk-in basis or arrange an appointment online. Customers enrolled in the chains’ Prescription Drug Plan will receive additional savings off the normal cost of the vaccination. For plan members, the regular flu vaccination and intradermal vaccination are $24.99, and the Fluzone high-dose vaccination is $44.99. The vaccinations are covered by most insurance plans, including Tri-Care and Medicare, and there’s no out-of-pocket expense for customers with most Medicare Part B coverage.
