$29.95. Here are some details from the information they sent me:
“CVS/pharmacy just launched its first ever online flu shot gift cards. These gift cards can be emailed, printed and redeemed for a flu vaccine at CVS/pharmacy’s more than 7,000 locations, as well as the company’s 500+ MinuteClinic locations. This year, only one vaccine is required for protection against three influenza strains, including the H1N1 virus and the seasonal H3N2 virus. For $29.95, anyone can send a friend or family member this ‘all-in-one’ flu shot protection in the form of an eGift Card.
“The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends that people get a flu shot every year. It’s especially important for children over 6 months old, people who have chronic illnesses (such as asthma and diabetes), are pregnant, over age 65, or caregivers for people within these high-risk groups. While getting an annual flu shot is important for many people, many do not get them because they either don’t have the money or are uninsured. That’s why the flu shot digital gift card is a perfect gift from caregivers of people in high-risk groups.”

Getting a flu shot at CVS is quite easy. You can schedule one online, in person or over the phone. If your store has minute clinics I believe you can just walk in. We took my mom yesterday and after filling out a form she received the shot—it was easy and uneventful. She also received a coupon for 10% off any purchase at CVS Coupon (some restrictions apply).
You can purchase the CVS Flu eGift card online and have it emailed to any email address you choose. The recipient prints it out and uses it when they get their shot.
