Publix is basically paying you to get your flu shot.

The grocery store chain will give you a free $10 gift card if you get vaccinated at one of its pharmacies.

Publix says just stop by anytime they are open. No appointment is necessary.

The offer is only available for a limited time.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends everyone 6 months of age and older get a flu vaccine by the end of October.

The CDC says while seasonal influenza viruses are detected year-round in the United States, flu viruses are most common during the fall and winter.

Influenza activity often begins to increase in October.

Typically flu activity peaks between December and February, although activity can last as late as May.
