Walgreens will Give A Shot® when you get one! #cbias #shop

It’s back to school time and that means not only stocking up on school supplies, but getting those physicals (and immunizations) taken care of.  Walgreens has got you covered for it all AND is giving back to those in need!

No one likes to get shots – and that’s certainly true for my girls who are headed in to Kindergarten and 3rd Grade.    Walgreens is helping to take the sting out of school immunizations by participating in the United Nation Foundation’s Shot@Life Campaign.  The concept is simple – your child (age 7 and older) will GET a shot they need to head back to school (like whooping-cough or meningitis), and Walgreens will GIVE a shot to a child in a developing country.  Easy peasy!

Walgreens is thrilled to be participating in this important and life-saving campaign.  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, particularly in reducing cases of measles and polio.2

My girls don’t like getting shots, and we spend lots of time talking about ways to make the entire process easier.  It usually involves an ice pack, a character band-aid, and our favorite stuffed animal.

They also understand that medical care isn’t as easily available in other parts of the world as it is here.  Not only do they have great pediatricians, but we have resources like Walgreens Healthcare Clinics that we can go to as an alternative options.  Walgreens is especially handy for us now since we have recently relocated and haven’t found regular doctors in our new city.  Most insurance is accepted and when we do settle on a primary care physician, Walgreens will report back to them on all of the treatment we’ve received.

I’m thrilled to know that Walgreens can take care of all of our back-to-school needs this year, and will be giving back to those in need!  For more information on the Shot@Life program, check out the Walgreens Website.
