AUGUSTA, Ga. (WFXG) - Summer has arrived, and it's time to ensure your family's health is protected by updating your vaccinations.

Kroger Health is offering year-round vaccines to ensure you and your loved ones stay safe throughout the seasons. 

As the summer season unfolds, Krysta Greenleaf, Assistant Pharmacy Manager at Kroger on Harper Franklin Avenue, emphasizes the importance of vaccination for families.

"Even though the summer season is coming, we definitely want to encourage people to stay protected for their family and friends and loved ones. So, we still offer vaccines year-round, including during the summertime," Greenleaf explains. 

Kroger locations are equipped to provide a range of essential vaccines, including RSV, updated Covid-19 shots, Tetanus, and other necessary boosters.

"It especially affects infants and people who are over 60. So, when we get people who are 60 and older immunized, it sort of protects people that they come in contact with..." Greenleaf states.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), states like Georgia and South Carolina are experiencing minimal hospital visits for flu and RSV cases.

Customers have the flexibility to choose between scheduling an appointment or walking in for their vaccinations at Kroger Health locations.
