Just in time to send the kiddies off to school, CVS is offering a free flu shot – providing you spend a little cash while you’re there, of course.

Available at every CVS pharmacy and MinuteClinic stores, the flu shots will be provided at no charge to consumers who buy $30 worth of products from Procter & Gamble such as Bounty paper towels, Pampers diapers and Tide laundry detergent.
. . .
Earlier this month – and likely the reason for the whole idea – Walgreens began offering flu shot coupons at its stores. The retailer is offering the gift cards for $29.99 at all of its 7,500 drugstores as well as on its website, Walgreens.com.

This is an example of how free markets produce great stuff. And this is why the Obama Democrats made a bad situation worse with their government takeover of health care.
