Yesterday I stopped in at the local Walgreens and got my flu shot. With their Get A Shot Give A Shot program, for every vaccine administered at a Walgreens Pharmacy, they will donate a vaccination shot to a child in an underdeveloped country. This is something that I can do to help with horrific health issues with the poor and needy people who aren’t capable of getting something that we all think is just a simple task that takes less than an hour out of our lives one day a year.
I always try and get the flu shot as soon as possible and this year I have been advised to get another one around the end of December. That is something that I’ll need to discuss with my regular doctor rather than the pharmacy tech that was helping me with all the paperwork required and insurance info verification before they even think about getting the needle out for anyone.
