HSA/FSA savings event runs November 29 through December 12

CINCINNATI, Nov. 28, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — The Kroger Co. (NYSE: KR), today shared health and wellness tips from Kroger Health to support patients during cold and flu season and announced its wellness savings event running from November 29 to December 12.

“The most effective way to battle cold and flu season is for eligible patients to get vaccinated for flu, RSV and COVID-19,” said Meggen Brown, MSN, FNP-BC, chief nursing officer for Kroger Health. “It is also very important to maintain healthy habits related to handwashing, diet, sleep and exercise to support a good defense against illness this time of year.”

Kroger Health suggests these tips to support patient health and wellness during cold and flu season and beyond:

  • Get vaccinated by making an appointment here or visit a local Kroger Family Pharmacy or Little Clinic location (flu and COVID-19 vaccines are covered by most insurance plans and at no charge to the recipient, see patient insurance plans for more details).
  • Wash your hands frequently.
  • Stay home when you are sick.
  • Support your immune system by consuming foods high in nutrients that play significant roles in immune health.
  • Stay hydrated.
  • Practice good sleep habits.
  • Stay active.

To make an appointment to see a healthcare professional please visit or simply stop by a Little Clinic location. The Little Clinic is open seven days a week, including evenings, weekends and some holidays. Nurse practitioners are also available to help patients virtually via telehealth appointments in specific states.
