No one is going to pay $31.99 for a flu shot when they can go to a competitor and pay $10 less or go to health dept. and get one at no cost. Very few insurances pay for them at the retail pharmacy level.

i agree, why did they change to $31.99; just leave at $29.99...the greed is going to cost them tons of flu shots especially in this economy.

Walgreen is not part of a "PUSH" its only offering them. Big difference. The title is trying to influence readers with a fraudulent headline.

Really? Walgreens would push an old lady off the 10th floor for a buck. Are they different in "Canada"?

We don't have Walgreens in Canada. I was being critical of the headline that implied Walgreens was pushing vaccines. I say they merely offer them, no one is forced to take them. Bogus headlines are frequently used to coerce people into acting like sheeple.

Perhaps what they are trying to say is Walgreens makes us "push flu shots"? With all the ads in carts, phone answering ..signs everywhere ..ask all if they have had their flu shot.

I think this shows that the vaccine is a product. Its marketed with fera mongering and fraud, so I guess Walgreens has no soul, just the typical greed factor. You won't hear a word about injury or paralysis, which is a flu vac side effect.

It didn't bother me. I've had worse and given worse. I think we're on the same side anyway.
