New York's Attorney General says Walgreens duped customers into thinking they were getting free flu shots, when in fact, they weren't free at all.
Eric Schneiderman says more than three thousand people insured by the New York State Empire Plan were misled.
As a result, he's reached a deal with Walgreens to refund payments to those forced to pay for shots out of their own pocket.
It's about 30 bucks a shot.
