Get a Shot. Give a Shot. Adult Immunizations at Walgreens Through October 14th #GiveaShot #cbias
As a mother, I know how important it is to keep our children’s immunizations up to date, especially since they are all now in school. As parents, we think about the possibilities of our children getting sick and dying from horrible diseases that can be prevented with immunizations, but do we think about them for ourselves? I mean, if we aren’t caught up on our immunizations and we get sick and die from something that could have been prevented, how will our children’s lives be without us to take care of them? This is why it is so important for us as adults to keep our immunizations up to date! Thanks to Walgreens, Adult Immunizations are available quickly and at an affordable rate.
I didn’t really think about updating my immunizations until I wanted to travel internationally and wanted to volunteer at my children’s schools. After all, when we’re adults, there aren’t as many immunizations we need to have, so it’s a lot easier to overlook. But as parents, we want the best for our children and we can give them the best if we take care of our heath.
I am a work-at-home mom (as a full-time blogger and campaign leader) and earn enough money to take care of our family and home, but I don’t have health insurance. That means going to the doctor’s office can be a huge expense. I love that I have the option to go to Walgreens for my immunizations! Yep, select Walgreens offers immunizations!
Walgreens is also helping to save the world one vaccine at a time with it’s “Get A Vaccine. Give a Vaccine.” program. Walgreens has partnered with the United Nations Foundation’s Shot at Life campaign. Until October 14th, 2013, for every person who receives a flu shot or any immunization at Walgreens, they’ll help supply a life saving vaccine to a child in a developing country. Together, this partnership will provide up to three million vaccines for life threatening diseases like Measles and Polio.
