Vaccination Sales Contest at CVS "High Budget Need To Start Strong!"

Cvs flu shot goal board 2013

If you've ever doubted that vaccinations are  profit center with goals and incentives - here's your proof. Can you imagine this chart for heart medications? Or for pain killers? Vaccines are outside of medicine - they are liability free profit makers.  And you, the potential customer, bear all the risk.   Thank you AofA reader CSK for sending this photo from a New England CVS.

Frightening.

If it's on the internet, it must be true.

Eh.  I was happy we could get our flu shots at Walgreens.  There are a ton of ads for meds and pain killers.  Why would any one expect a for-profit store to NOT want to make a profit?  People are responsible for their own choices.

My guess is they want to make sure they use as much of their inventory as possible. Pharmacies have to buy their stock of vaccines at the start of the season, but do not get reimbursed for unused doses.
