Walgreens and United Nations Foundation have teamed up since 2013 for Get a Shot. Give a Shot®, a campaign that has helped to provide more than 20 million life-saving vaccines to children in developing countries. For every flu shot or other immunization administered at a Walgreens Healthcare Clinic at select Walgreens or Duane Reade in New York, Walgreens will help provide a vaccine to a child in need through the Foundation’s Shot@Life campaign.

This award-winning partnership has helped provide vaccines to children in developing countries such as Chad, Central African Republic, Democratic Republic of the Congo, East Timor, and Tanzania. We are now heading into our fifth year together with Walgreens committing to donate 0.22 cents for every immunization administered in a Walgreens store up to $2M.
Walgreens is one of the nation’s largest drugstore chains and part of Walgreens Boots Alliance, Inc., the first global pharmacy-led, health and wellbeing enterprise. With 8,000 stores, Walgreens is present in communities across America, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
