Free flu shots through CVS program
Laguna Beach Community Clinic is one of nearly 350 health centers across the country participating in Direct Relief USA and CVS Caremark's donation of as much as $5 million in free flu shots to patients who lack health insurance. The participating clinics and health centers will identify uninsured individuals from their existing patient populations and provide them with a free flu shot voucher, which is redeemable at any CVS/pharmacy or MinuteClinic location.
Free flu shot vouchers will be available beginning this week while supplies last.
Direct Relief USA is a nonprofit organization that works with 1,100 clinics and health centers in all 50 states, providing them with free medications and supplies for their low-income and uninsured patients. Customers can make an appointment to receive a flu shot from a CVS pharmacist at the time, date and location of their choice by using the My Flu Shot Scheduler available at http://www.cvs.com/flu or by calling toll-free (888) FLU-SHOT or (888) 88-GRIPE for Spanish speakers. MinuteClinic nurse practitioners are available to provide vaccinations seven days a week during regular business hours with no appointment required.
