Amid the ongoing pandemic, Hy-Vee is announcing that most of its pharmacy locations will offer drive-up flu vaccines beginning in August.
The company also said the flu vaccine will also be available inside its more than 270 Hy-Vee pharmacy locations throughout its eight-state region without an appointment or prescription.
Hy-Vee shared a list of implementations it's taking to ensure safe administration of the flu vaccine amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
- All Hy-Vee pharmacy team members are required to wear face masks at all times, including while administering immunizations.
- Any patient with COVID-19-like symptoms or who has had prolonged exposure to a positive case should wait the appropriate amount of time prior to receiving their vaccine for the health and safety of our patients and team members.
- Patients receiving a vaccination will need to wear a face covering.
Drive-up flu vaccines will be offered in the parking lot of many Hy-Vee pharmacy locations between Monday, August 17th and Saturday, October 31st during the following times each week:
- Monday: 7 a.m.-11 a.m.
- Thursday: 3 p.m.-7 p.m.
- Saturday: 10 a.m.-2 p.m.
The company says you can give your local Hy-Vee pharmacy a call to find out more information about the vaccine or if they will be offering this drive-up service.
