Get A Shot Give A Shot

Walgreens has launched its annual “Get a Shot Give a Shot” program. For every immunization administered at Walgreens, Healthcare Clinic or Duane Reade, Walgreens has pledged to donate the value of a lifesaving vaccine to children who need them the most. Since the program began in 2013, this campaign has helped provide more than 15 million polio and measles vaccines.

This flu season, Walgreens hopes to heighten awareness about the importance of being protected from the influenza virus, and do whatever it can to help address this important public health issue.

State Representative Steve Andersson is raising awareness about the importance of public health. He recently visited a Walgreens on State Street in Geneva to receive his flu shot and encourage others to stay healthy this season. “With winter around the corner, and colder temperatures coming, it is important to do whatever you can to help stay healthy throughout the season,” said Andersson. “Getting a flu shot is one way to help ensure you remain healthy this year, and doing so at Walgreens is an added bonus that helps those in need around the world.”
