Immunizations at Walgreens Help Children Get@Shot at Life!

It’s a great time of year to make sure all of your immunizations are up to date. I needed my seasonal flu vaccine, so I went to Walgreens to help support the Get a Shot-Give a Shot program. From September 2nd through October 13th, for every flu shot or other immunization you receive at Walgreens, you will help provide a life-saving vaccine to a child in a developing country through the United Nation Foundation’s Shot@Life Campaign

Isn’t it sad that children in Tanzania are not even sure that they will grow up? Together, we can protect children from diseases like measles and polio. In countries with low healthcare resources, vaccine preventable deceases account for 20% of all childhood deaths. Let’s do what we can to help put a stop to this. I was more than happy to head over to my local Walgreens to get my flu shot. It was super easy. The pharmacy was easy to find and the waiting area was nice and clean.

Immunization is one of the world’s biggest public health success stories. Yet, 1 in 5 children around the globe still lack access to the lifesaving immunizations. Coordinated worldwide vaccination efforts have made significant progress, but help is still needed. The partnership between Walgreens and the United Nation Foundation’s Shot@Life campaign will provide up to 3 million vaccines for children all over the world. This video provides just a glimpse of how immunizations can make a huge difference. You might want to have a tissue ready. It brought tears to my eyes.


Please consider getting your seasonal flu shot or other immunizations at Walgreens. They have a questionnaire at the store where you can find out if you might need other vaccinations like shingles, tetanus, or hepatitis. Isn’t it great that you can do something good for yourself and help others at the same time? If you are a Walgreens Balance Rewards member, you get 500 bonus points too. How cool is that?

You can formally “take the pledge”  to get your shot at Walgreens on their website. Share this program with your family and friends on social media and join the movement helping make a world of difference to children in need. Walgreens also donated 10 million dollars worth of free flu shot vouchers to Americans without insurance coverage. I have always been a fan of Walgreens, but this makes me love them even more.

Get a Shot, Give a shot is one of my favorite concepts. If I had a shot to get, I would go to Walgreens knowing they were giving a shot to someone else.
