It’s that time of year.   The summer is winding down; families are getting their ducks in a row, getting ready to head back to school.  Such an exciting time!  Kids are getting their school assignments and school supply lists.

Aah, the memories…

I remember the anticipation of finding out which teacher I was assigned and who else would be in my class.  Not so exciting, but definitely important were the required school immunizations.  It was a necessary evil, something that I definitely took for granted.  We are very lucky as a nation, for the most part, to have easy access to preventative medicine such as annual physicals and immunizations against life threatening diseases like whopping cough or meningitis. Thanks to Walgreens and Shot@Life, now children in developing nations have a shot at preventing these deadly diseases as well.



Help needy children stay healthy

Walgrees Shot at Life w pcSo this is where you come in!  When your child gets their school immunizations, like whooping cough or meningitis at Walgreens, they will help provide a life saving vaccine to a child in a developing country through the United Nation Foundation’s Shot@Life (up to $1,000,000.)  The program saves a life every 20 seconds by providing access to immunizations.  So in the time it’s taken you to read this far in the post, three lives have been saved. Walgreens makes it super easy to #giveashot – you don’t even need an appointment.  They even accept most insurance.  Walgreen’s pharmacist will even report back to your child’s primary care physician.
