ROCHESTER, NY, 2014-9-10 — /EPR Retail News/ — The YMCA of Greater Rochester has partnered with Wegmans Pharmacy to provide YMCA members with a convenient way for adults (ages 18 and up) to receive flu shots by offering flu clinics at select Y branches throughout the community. Members do not need a prescription or appointment. The cost is covered by most major insurance companies.
The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and Prevention recommends a yearly flu vaccine as an important step against infection. The CDC believes the flu shot is one of the best ways to protect families throughout the flu season.
