Planning to get a flu shot this year? You can get a free flu shot at CVS.

Well, there’s a catch: You’ll need to buy $30 worth of select Procter & Gamble products to get the freebie. You can find the products in the store flier.

The deal is good through Saturday, Sept. 4. The regular price for a flu shot is $29.95.
