Kerr Drug Providing Flu Shots, General Store at NC State Fair

Kerr Drug is making its presence known at the North Carolina State Fair, which takes place from October 13-23, by featuring a General Store at the center of the fairgrounds.

The General Store will carry basic drug store items that fairgoers often forget, including sun tan lotion, headache relief medicine, antacids, and first aid supplies. Kerr Drug will also serve as the exclusive provider of flu shots at the fair. Individuals aged 14 and older can get the influenza vaccine at 2 different Kerr Drug locations at the fairgrounds.

“The NC State Fair shows off the best traditions of North Carolina and Kerr Drug, with our headquarters in Raleigh and our pharmacies across the state, is proud to be the operator of the Fair’s General Store as well as be the Exclusive Provider of Flu Shots of the NC State Fair,” said Tony Civello, CEO of Kerr Drug.

Kerr Drug is opening its General Store in response to requests from fairgoers and fair workers for basic drug store items. The General Store is also located in the center of the fairgrounds near the Waterfall. All items in the General Store are for sale at retail prices and cash and credit cards will be accepted. The General Store will be open Monday through Saturday from 9 a.m. to 9:45 p.m. and on Sundays from 10 a.m. to 9:45 p.m.

Kerr Drug has provided flu shots at the North Carolina State Fair for several years; each year, the number of patients taking advantage of the immunization program has increased. Flu shots are available at Kerr Drug’s Fair Booth in the center of the fairgrounds near the Waterfall and beside the Village of Yesteryear. Flu shots will be available from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. daily during the Fair’s 10-day run.

Kerr Drug bills most major insurance plans for flu shots at the fair. Credit cards will be accepted.
