DEERFIELD, Ill., Oct. 3, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- In preparation for flu season, actress Amanda Peet, ambassador of the UN Foundation's Shot@Life program, received her annual flu shot at Walgreens, http://news.walgreens.com, (NYSE: WAG) (Nasdaq: WAG) flagship store in New York City to support its "Get a Shot, Give a Shot" campaign – with the goal of providing up to 3 million life-saving vaccines to children in developing countries.

As a mother, actress and ambassador to the UN Foundation's Shot@Life program, Amanda spoke about the importance of providing life-saving vaccinations to children in need across the globe. According to Shot@Life and the UN Foundation:

  • One-in-five children worldwide lack access to lifesaving immunizations;
  • A child dies of a vaccine-preventable disease every 20 seconds;
  • The number of children dying every year from preventable diseases in developing countries is nearly equal to half the children entering kindergarten in the U.S.

From now through Oct. 14, Walgreens will donate the value of one life-saving vaccine to children in developing countries for every flu shot or other vaccine administered at any of its pharmacies, Healthcare Clinics at select Walgreens or Duane Reade pharmacy. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends a flu shot for everyone over the age of 6 months as soon as the vaccine becomes available.

Flu shots are offered on a walk-in basis, and those interested in appointments can schedule one online for any Walgreens or Healthcare Clinic by visiting www.walgreens.com or www.walgreens.com/clinic.

Flu shots are available daily during all pharmacy and clinic hours, including nights, overnights at 24-hour pharmacy locations, weekends and holidays[1], with no appointment necessary.  Age restrictions vary by state at Walgreens pharmacies, while Healthcare Clinics at select Walgreens can provide immunizations for patients age 2 and older. Flu shots are covered for eligible patients under Medicare Part B as well as most insurance plans.
