When you are picking up markers and paper and crayons at Walgreens you can get your kiddos their shots for the new school year! Yep that’s right Walgreens makes it quick and easy – no appointment needed and best of all most insurance is accepted. Oh and don’t worry a Walgreens pharmacists will report back to your primary care physician. One stop shop for all your back to school needs right?
Here is something even better! When your child gets an immunization at Walgreens you are helping them Give a Shot to a child in need. By getting their school immunizations, like whooping cough or meningitis at Walgreens, they will help provide a life saving vaccine to a child in a developing country through the United Nation Foundation’s Shot@Life Campaign. How amazing is that? I love knowing that we are helping other children and it can help your child get over that shot anxiety.
You can talk to your kids about how by being brave and getting their shot they are helping another child get a better Shot@Life. While that might work for some it is just inevitable that kids don’t like getting shots.
There are plenty of ways you can ease the shot fears, by preparing at home by playing doctor with stuffed animals, fun bandaids, bringing their special stuffed animal along but in my experience I prepare for the worst. I know they are going to scream and cry, I prepare myself for that, just let go of trying to prevent that from happening because it will happen, at least with mine.
Which brings me to my method for getting them their shots, bribery, just pure bribery. Being at Walgreens for the shots makes that even easier because with their large selection of snacks and candy and Dean’s favorite their as seen on TV section it is easy to have them get their shots and pick out a small treat for being brave and helping out another child.
So this back to school season head to Walgreens and get three things done at one, back to school shopping, back to school immunizations and helping another child get a Shot@Life.
How do you get your little ones to get their shots?
