Publix introduces online service to let customers schedule flu shot appointment

ORLANDO, Fla. — Publix announced Monday that it is offering a new online service for customers who would like to get their flu shot.

The service allows customers to schedule an appointment for their vaccination and sign consent forms before they arrive at the store.

“Due to the recent pandemic, the demand for flu vaccinations is higher than usual, and the health and safety of our customers and associates continue to be a top priority,” said Publix Vice President of Pharmacy Dain Rusk. “Providing our patients the opportunity to schedule their flu vaccines and complete their consent form will assist with social distancing measures as well as enhance customer experience at our pharmacies.”

Officials said customers who wish to schedule a time for their flu shot will complete and submit a vaccination consent form online. Once that is submitted, customers can make an appointment at their chosen Publix Pharmacy.

Publix said it will also allow customers to select multiple vaccinations in the future.

For a limited time, customers will be given a $10 Publix gift card after they receive a flu shot.
