Walgreens provides flu vaccines at largest polling location in Cape May County

Vote & Vax ClinicWalgreens Pharmacy collaborated with the Vote and VaxExternal organization in Wildwood New Jersey on Election Day to offer influenza vaccinations to voters in the community of Cape May County. Vote and Vax is committed to protecting Americans from the flu and has helped provide thousands of flu vaccinations to at-risk Americans.  This collaboration helped deliver flu vaccines to a large patient base in the community, many of whom previously never received a flu vaccination. The flu shot is the best protection you can get against influenza. That’s why each year the CDC recommends a flu shot for everyone over the age of 6 months.

On Election Day, Walgreens-trained pharmacists from Rio Grande, Wildwood and Millville were onsite and able to provide a variety of influenza vaccines, including high dose and quadrivalent vaccines.

Walgreens-trained healthcare providers, administered over eighty vaccinations to the local community, which consisted of Influenza and pneumococcal vaccines which also helped support the Walgreens Get a Shot, Give a Shot campaignExternal. For every vaccine (all vaccines, not just flu) administered at a Walgreens pharmacy, Walgreens will donate the value of a life-saving vaccine to a child in need in a developing country – through our partnership with the UN Foundation and its Shot@Life campaign.
