It’s back to school time again which means that many children will need to get their required vaccines. Did you know many Walgreens locations give immunizations so you don’t have to wait weeks or even months for an appointment with your pediatrician or family doctor? Not only that, when your child gets a vaccine such as whooping cough or meningitis at Walgreens they will also help a child in a developing country get a life saving vaccine.
While I consider myself to be part of the natural parenting community I am very pro-vaccine. It is a topic that I have researched at length 14½ years ago when my first child was born, and again 3½ years ago when my second child was born. I have decided that vaccines are the right choice for my family.
While I make sure that my children are up-to-date with all of their shots, some kids have to play catch up for a variety of reasons. If you have a child over seven who needs a first shot in a series or a booster shot, now is the perfect time to get it out of the way. You can walk in almost any time and most insurance is accepted.
With diseases like whooping cough reaching epidemic proportions it is more important than ever to make sure that your children are protected. While we are lucky here in the US to have access to vaccinations, sadly children in developing countries do not. But you can help. It doesn’t require any extra time or money from you but will make a huge difference in the life of a child.
I love to give back to those in need whenever I can and I am doing my best to instill those values in my children. This is one simple way that I can do that by doing something that I would be doing already. So get a shot at Walgreens today and give a shot to a child in need.
