Did you know that you can stay up to date with your vaccine schedule at Walgreens, I did not know this. I see many drugstores offer flu vaccines, but Walgreens offers a wide variety that will take care of not only the Flu vaccine but also travel immunizations (you can see my whole shop here on G+).
A while back my husband and I traveled to Guatemala for a mission trip and when you travel to 3rd world area it’s a good idea, in my opinion, to get travel immunizations. You can easily pick up something you don’t want that could put you out of commission not only while you are there but also when you come back, too. No fun.
One of the Vaccines we got was the Hepatitis A shot. I was really glad I did because just recently my family had a Hepatitis A scare. It ended up being nothing but I felt so much better that I would not be getting Hepatitis A due to my travel immunizations a few years back.
Since Walgreens can keep you up to date on your vaccine schedule it makes this really easy for the whole family. Our family loves doing things together and being sick really takes the joy out of life (and could end up being dangerous). One of the things we like to do together is watch my oldest take her horseback riding lessons and if we are sick it means less, fun family time.
The other great thing about the Walgreens Immunization program is that through October 14, 2013 everyone who receives a flu shot or any immunization at Walgreens will help supply a vaccine to a child in a developing country with the ‘Get A Shot. Give A Shot’ program. The hope is to help provide up to three million vaccines for life threatening diseases such as measles and polio.
I love this because it’s a BOGO.. and you know how we like to get freebies here at FFD!! So not only do you to feel great about getting a freebie you get to give it to a child in need. Pretty nice, right?
