People who are unable to go to a doctor's office for flu shots will be able to get them at a drugstore, under a program announced on Tuesday by the Walgreen Company.

Nearly 2,000 drugstores will participate in the program, which seeks to make influenza prevention more convenient for elderly Americans or for those suffering from chronic illnesses.

The shots will be available at each Walgreen drugstore on at least one day from Oct. 1 through Oct. 22, the company said. The shots will cost about $10, and no appointment or prescription will be necessary.
