Walgreens Helps You Stay Healthy and Gives the Gift of Health to Others

When I think of getting ready to head back to school, school supplies, new clothes, and gym shoes come to mind.
But keeping the kids healthy should also be at the top of that list.
Sports physicals, updating our children’s immunizations as well as preventative immunizations are something we are in the middle of doing right now.
This fall, Walgreens is not only helping to keep your children healthy but also helping others in the process with their Get a Shot, Give a Shot campaign.
Right now at your local Walgreens, any child age 7 and up can get their immunizations taken care of for illnesses such as whooping cough or meningitis and in turn, they will then provide a shot to a child in a developing country.
There is no appointment needed to get your immunizations and it is quick and easy which is helpful because back to school time is busy.
I love that I can tell my girls not only will the vaccination that they get will help to make them healthy but that they had a part in helping someone else stay healthy as well.

I love Walgreen’s for more than just immunizations and medicine.
I have a love affair with Walgreen’s that runs deep.
It started in 1989.
On a snowy Christmas Eve, my first Christmas after moving to Chicago.
My mom and I always used to go to Walgreen’s to do our last minute shopping.
It started out of necessity and has slowly developed into a tradition some 25 years later.

I get giddy walking in the doors, smelling that Walgreen’s smell, all the fun things to buy OTHER than for medicinal purposes.
All the cosmetics …..


I wear makeup, probably on average, 10 days out of the calendar year.
Yet, this place hooks me.
We came in to get shots.

But, but, but……

Oooh, I don’t have any yellow nail polish!!!

So in between getting what you need for your kids to be healthy this fall, I think you need to stop and pick up some goodies for you.
Because you just made a difference in someone else’s life.
Plus you are special and deserve it.

Oh and pick up a card for Aunt Margaret.

Because she loves you and knitted you that sweater in fifth grade.
Maybe I will get one for my mom too.
Talking about how much I can’t wait for Christmas Eve.

We love Walgreen’s for many reasons but it is also great as a fast and easy way to get immunizations for our
family because most insurance plans are accepted and they will report
everything back to your primary care physician
To learn more about Walgreen’s Get a Shot, #Give a Shot program, head over here to check it out.

Thank you to Walgreen’s and #CollectiveBias for this opportunity.
Again, all opinions are my own.
But seriously, check out the cosmetics.

  1. Wow, such a nice program! I also love Walgreens, so much so that I sporadically forget that my insurance isn't compatible there and try to get a prescription filled only to be reminded that I must stick to the cosmetics, cards, and nicely-stocked toy section.
