Press Release

HSA/FSA savings event runs now through December 12

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 next wellness savings event is underway now through December 9.

“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 plan and at no charge to the recipient. Check your insurance plan 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.
