TRICARE Vaccination Program ALERT

Seasonal Flu, Pneumonia, and H1N1

Island Drug can now offer these vaccines to TRICARE Beneficiaries at a $0 Copay, effective immediately!!!  This is a brand new offering and we are excited to be able to extend our vaccination services to TRICARE Beneficiaries as a covered pharmacy expense with no out of pocket cost.  Below is some recent information on our current vaccine offerings, all three (seasonal flu, H1N1, and pneumonia) are currently available and can be given on the same visit which can be any time our stores are open!


Both Island Drug stores have just received a new shipment of the SEASONAL Flu Vaccine!

Just in the door is our 3rd shipment of the regular seasonal influenza vaccine!  This vaccine is open to all just like the H1N1 (see below).  The CDC recommends vaccinating thru January and beyond.   Further, peak influenza season does not typically hit our area until around February, so there is still plenty of time to get protection against seasonal flu.

As always, Island Drug is your most convenient vaccination destination; vaccines administered EVERY hour we are open, NO Appointment necessary.  To make the process quicker for you in the store, if you would like to have the administration form filled out ahead of time, they are available for download; Flu or Pneumonia Detailed information about the vaccines are available for download also; Flu or Pneumonia.
