Oftentimes as parents we focus so much on the health of our children that we forget to take care of ourselves. Walgreens takes the guess work out of the immunizations and helps you prepare for the seasonal flu so that you can remain healthy and enjoy your family! Not only does the Get a Shot, Give a Shot® program help you; in the process, you also help others! 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. #GetaShot #CollectiveBias
Think your participation will not matter? 1 in 5 children around the globe still lack access to life-saving immunizations. However, with the coordinated worldwide vaccination efforts like the Get a Shot, Give a Shot® program from Walgreens help make significant progress, particularly in reducing cases of measles and polio. With the Get a Shot, Give a Shot® program from Walgreens aimed at school-aged children, ages 7 and up, for every school immunization given, a life saving vaccine is then provided to a child in a developing country through the United Nation Foundation’s Shot@Life Campaign. Whether you’re receiving standard vaccines in anticipation of winter or preparing to travel abroad, your willingness to be vaccinated can have a long-lasting impact.
So why would we as adults needs immunizations? With the next Chiberia around the corner, I’m all too aware of the seasonal flu and its effects on me as the matriarch of the family. Places to go and people to see means I have to be ready and healthy! It’s another reason why I love Walgreens – they prepare me for winter with a flu immunization and help me to concentrate on the bigger things – like playing in the snow!
Another vital space for immunizations is travel abroad, particularly in areas with high disease risk. Later this year, I’ll be heading to Zambia, Africa on an orphaned children’s project with Habitat for Humanity. While there, we’ll work on building a foster home for a family there and connecting with local families. In anticipation, I’ll need vital immunizations to protect against disease and other health concerns. The opportunity to help families is even more magnified by the need for immunizations in advance and the opportunity to give even more by being immunized through the Walgreens program for #GetaShot, Give a Shot.
The fact that Walgreens offers physicals, immunizations and travel consultations for adults as well means that as a busy mom, I can get everything I need to without having to go to several different places. Instead, I head to Walgreens and prepare for whatever I might need – winter prevention, travel abroad and general wellness, but also help others in the process.
Every 20 seconds a child dies from a disease that could have been prevented by a vaccine. How will you do your part by making sure you #GetaShot, so that Walgreens can give one?
