Walgreens donates up to 3 million vaccines to developing countries


Walgreens, the largest drugstore chain in the U.S., has partnered with the United Nations Foundation to help children in developing countries to get the vaccines they need this flu season. Through their “Get a Shot, Give a Shot” initiative they are giving away money for up to 3 million vaccines. All you need to do to make sure the children who need it get their shot is to get a shot yourself and the value of one shot will be donated to the United Nations Foundation’s Shot@Life campaign. You can get a vaccine administered at every Walgreen pharmacy, Heathcare Clinic at select Walgreens or Duane Reade pharmacy in New York.

According to statistics, every 20 seconds a child dies from a vaccine-preventable disease and the Shot@Life campaign/movement has been created to help prevent those preventable child deaths and give the children a chance of health life.

“Vaccines are one of the most cost-effective ways to save and improve the lives of children in developing countries by protecting them from life-threatening diseases,” says Kathy Calvin from United Nations Foundation.

In addition to helping children in developing countries, within the past years Walgreens has also distributed around 1 million free flu shot vouchers to individuals in the U.S.
