Business Brief: Flu shots available at Vineyard Scripts

Flu shots for Islanders age 18 and older are now available from pharmacist David Perzanowski at Vineyard Scripts at 117 Beach Road in Vineyard Haven.

Mr. Perzanowski will provide the shots any time during his work hours, which are posted at the pharmacy. He said he also would be happy to schedule appointments for shots on his days off.

The cost is $25, which may or may not be covered by healthcare insurance, Mr. Perzanowski said. Although Medicare billing is not currently available, he said he expects it will be very soon.

Mr. Perzanowski co-owns Vineyard Scripts with his wife Nellie. He received state certification to give the inoculations after completing a training program last year. In order to be certified, Mr. Perzanowski completed 4 hours of class time, 20 hours of correspondence coursework, and cardiopulmonary resuscitation certification, and passed an exam.
