Giant Food will offer strep throat and flu testing at 14 of its pharmacies throughout Maryland and Virginia.
Giant Food is bringing on-site testing for strep throat and influenza A and B strains to 14 of its pharmacy locations in Virginia and Maryland. The service is available for patients ages 3 and older, and results will be available within 10 minutes.
Certified in-store pharmacists or certified technicians will perform the tests, and Giant offers an optional telehealth visit with a healthcare provider through Physician 360 if additional consultation is necessary. Flu testing costs $39.99 and strep throat testing is $29.99, and an appointment is required for the services.
"Giant Food is committed to helping our customers by being a one-stop solution for not just their food needs, but also as part of their whole wellness package,” said Paul Zvaleny, director of pharmacy operations at Giant Food. “By offering these new testing services, we are enabling customers to get their results instantly, speak to a doctor, and receive their medicine without ever leaving a Giant Pharmacy.”
Continued Zvaleny: "Our Giant Pharmacy team is committed to keeping our communities in good health and we continue to keep our flu and cold products stocked for customers during this time of year when seasonal illness is often at a high."
