Why We Get Influenza Shots
My husband is a firefighter whose job puts him in contact with ill people on a daily basis. Because of this, he’s a firm believer in getting an influenza shot every year. His department depends the staff being fully immunized. Failure to do so could mean a staff shortage during the time of year when their services are needed on the most.
I’m self-employed so I have more flexibility. But I choose to get a flu shot because I’m convinced that my chances of getting ill are reduced and I simply hate being sick. It’s worth the small price to assure that I’m protected against the influenza strains mostly likely expected to hit our area.
Routine Vaccinations at Walgreens
Additionally, as a family we believe in routine vaccinations and while we generally get ours from our doctors during our annual physical exams, there are some shots that are required seasonally like the flu shot, or at other times of the year. For those it’s much more convenient to have them administered somewhere closer to home.
Walgreen’s offers immunization services at many of their retail stores. Better yet, most require no appointment and for me having them provided by the Walgreen’s Pharmacy means not having to schedule and pay for an office visit just to get a shot.
Routine Vaccines at Walgreens
Routine inoculations like Flu (Influenza) – Seasonal, Td (Tetanus, Diphtheria), Tdap (Whooping Cough), Meningitis (Meningococcal), Pneumonia (Pneumococcal), Chickenpox (Varicella), HPV (Human Papillomavirus), Hepatitis A (Hep A), Hepatitis A/Hepatitis B combination, Hepatitis B (Hep B), MMR (Measles, Mumps and Rubella), Polio, and Shingles (Herpes Zoster) are available at participating Walgreen’s Pharmacies. Additional services are available – check with your local store or visit their website to find out what’s available in your local area.
Get A Vaccine. Give A Vaccine
Walgreens has partnered with the United Nations Foundations [email protected] program to provide free vaccinations to children in impoverished nations. All you have to do to help is get a flu shot at Walgreens before October 14, 2013, and they’ll donate a dose of vaccine, up to 3 million! Why? Because every single child in the world deserves the chance to grown up and to do that, they deserve to be immune from childhood diseases that can be prevented with one simple and inexpensive vaccination.
Pledge to help others learn about this lifesaving program at the [email protected] website. Then follow [email protected] on Facebook and Twitter to learn more and watch the progress of the program and see how it’s working towards its 2015 goal of reducing childhood deaths around the world.
