Local 10, Walgreens team up for ‘Flu Shot Friday’

It's flu season and Local 10 is teaming up with Walgreens to bring you "Flu Shot Friday."
 
For one day only, on Friday, Oct. 27, from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., Walgreens will offer flu shots to Local 10 viewers at dozens of stores throughout South Florida. 
 
At this event, uninsured and underinsured individuals will be given a flu shot voucher, allowing them to receive the flu vaccine at no cost. Flu shot vouchers are available on a first-come, first-served basis, while supplies last.  

The flu shot vouchers are donated by Walgreens and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services as part of a national program to make flu shots available to those without health insurance coverage or to those who are unable to afford a flu shot. 

Each voucher is good for one flu shot at any Walgreens and is subject to the terms and conditions on the voucher.

"For more than a decade, Walgreens pharmacists have been a trusted and accessible community resource for flu shots and other immunizations," said Georgia Lehoczky, Walgreens regional health director and Roy Ripak, VP for South Florida. "Every flu season is unpredictable, which is why an annual flu shot is the first and most important preventive measure to take to protect yourself and those around you throughout the season."

The campaign is for one day only, and no appointment is necessary.
