Flu shots are back -- at Giant Food and other area retailers.

Giant is now offering the vaccinations at all in-store pharmacies with no appointment needed.

Shoppers with a Giant Pharmacy Prescription Savings Card get $10 off the regular price, and most major insurance plans are accepted. And while supplies last, all customers who get a flu shot will also get a coupon book worth more than $40 in savings.

Flu shots are also available at Rite Aid and Walmart.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends a yearly flu vaccine for everyone 6 months or older, especially those at high risk. They include young children, pregnant women, people 65 or older and people with chronic health conditions.
