I’m not quite ready to say goodbye to summer yet. But whether I like it or not, school starts next week and Summer 2014 is almost completely on its way out.
Back to school is now the main focus of our days as we take the last dips in the pool and towel sand off our legs from the beach.
And for my older children age seven and over, school required immunizations also come into play for them.
I’m lucky my children don’t have a fear of getting shots. They get them and make a big deal about choosing the character Band Aid that they wear afterwards. And if they are offered a sticker, they are over the moon excited. They are totally the opposite of their mother who would gladly give people money to not have to get a shot. Eeeek!
It’s the perfect time saver having Walgreens around for back to school items I needed to pick up as well as immunizations. And since my children always have wanted to help others in the community, I made sure to mention to them that children age 7 and older who go to Walgreens for immunizations can also help a child in need.
Through the United Nation Foundation’s Shot@Life Campaign, school immunizations — like whooping cough or meningitis — Walgreens, will help provide a life saving vaccine to a child in a developing country. What a great initiative for our children to participate in before they go back to school!
Thanks for sharing this information about #GiveaShot with me, #CollectiveBias!
