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.

Here’s the description of the show:

Parenthood introduces us to the very large, very colorful and imperfect Braverman family.  Single mother Sarah and her two children Amber and Drew moving back home with her parents Zeek and Camille. Sarah’s sister and complete antithesis, Julia, is a successful corporate attorney trying to juggle work and motherhood, alongside her stay-at-home husband, Joel. Executive producers are Ron Howard and Ron Grazer.

  • Best cheap date
