My co-worker Angie called her doctor to schedule a flu shot recently and was told that her doctor's office no longer offers flu shots because they don't get enough money back from the insurance company. Yet, everywhere I shop, Safeway, Giant, CVS, Costco, all have been heavily advertising sales on flu shots? I don't get it? Safeway is even advertising that you can get 10% off your grocery bill with a flu shot purchase. To some extent I'm glad these grocery stores are making the flu shot available because it makes it more accessible for those without health insurance. They don't have to pay for the doctor's time and the shot. But still, doesn't it feel backwards that you can get a flu shot at Harris Teeter and your doctors office doesn't offer it? What are your thoughts?
