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.

I love that Walgreens has made it possible for adults like me to maintain my health and update my immunizations easily and affordably! After all, by getting my immunizations, “I am giving my child a shot at __________.”
Are you up to date on your immunizations? Fill in your answer: “I am giving my child a shot at __________.”
I have seen the advertisements for this. It’s a good program and I get a flu shot every year- this year I will do it at Walgreens!
Ellen – it is definitely an awesome program, especially if you don’t have insurance. The Pharmacists were super helpful too!
I am giving a child a shot at Walgreens. I always get my Flu Shot at Walgreens and so does my sister. I will be getting a flu shot next month!
That is awesome Julie. Way to keep yourself and others healthy. 🙂
Love that they are giving back to those that need it!
Janel – I love that Walgreens gives back too. 🙂
What a great program. I love it when businesses give back.
Ellen – me too! Definitely makes me want to shop at their store before others. 🙂
I’ve been seeing the Flu Shot signs all over, and JUST realized last week that flu season is on it’s way. Boo! But it really IS nice that Walgreens makes it so easy to stay up to date on immunizations and other fun things like the annual flu shot. 😉
Lolli – I know, can you believe it’s already that time of year again? I agree that Walgreens definitely makes it easy to get done and gives back at the same time.
I have seen the signs advertising the Walgreens Flu shot program. This is a really useful program when you dont have insurance!
Diane – I totally agree with you!
What a great program!
Jennifer – it sure is a great program!
I love that they give affordable options to those of us who need them. That’s Awesome!
Amber – so do I!
This is so awesome, I am so excited that immunizations and other healthcare are being offered both budget friendly and convenient! It’s been a long time coming and so glad Walgreen’s has filled that void! Thanks for sharing the get a shot/give a shot promotion, that is like the cherry on top, love it!
Dawn – me too! I love Walgreens and this gives me even more reasons why!
I have actually never had a flu shot, but am seriously considering it this year. Especially with this awesome promotion!!
Jennifer – I used to get them every year, but then when I didn’t have insurance any more, I just couldn’t afford the doctor’s visit. This makes it possible again.
Thanks for sharing this awesome program! My entire family are up to date with our vaccinations. =)
Tee – that’s great that you’re up-to-date with your immunizations. Definitely important when volunteering at your child’s school or traveling.
WOW this is great to know. I didn’t know that Walgreens had this. Thank you so much for sharing.
I love how close and convenient Walgreens is for things like immunizations. The fact that my flu shot can help save a child is just another reason for me to go there!!
This is great. I am going to school to be a Pharmacist and I am proud to say that I will be giving out immunizations soon.
This is an excellent program! We all got our flu shots already!
Great post! I’m getting my shot Saturday! Wanna help me pick out which bandaid to use? They’re all displayed in the blog post linked to this ….. and I’d love it if you’d encourage your friends to vote! (So far “fashionista” is in the lead.)
