Northeast Community Clinics
CVS Caremark announced that it has partnered with Direct Relief USA to offer up to $6 million in free flu shots to community clinic and health center patients who lack health insurance. Northeast Community Clinics in Alhambra is among more than 400 participating clinics and health centers across the country identifying uninsured individuals from their existing patient populations and providing them with a free flu shot voucher, which is redeemable at any CVS/pharmacy or MinuteClinic location.
Flu vaccinations are available at more than 7,200 CVS/pharmacy locations and nearly 600 MinuteClinic locations inside select CVS/pharmacy stores. Flu shots are being provided by CVS pharmacists and MinuteClinic nurse practitioners and physician assistants every day, including evenings and weekends, with no appointment necessary. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommend that everyone ages six months and older get a flu shot as soon as possible, including those who were vaccinated last season.
A list of participating locations at which flu shot vouchers are now available for current uninsured patients of the clinics and health centers may be found at www.cvs.com/flu.
