Local 10 teams with Walgreens to provide flu shots

By Mayte Padron - Community Relations Director

PEMBROKE PARK, Fla. - It's flu season and Local 10 is teaming up with Walgreens to bring you "Flu Shot Friday."

For one day only this Friday, from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., Walgreens will offer flu shots to Local 10 viewers at dozens of stores throughout South Florida.

Whether you have insurance or not, you can get a voucher for a flu shot without having to make an appointment. It's that simple and convenient. Plus, when you get a shot, you give a shot to a child in need.

"For more than a decade, Walgreens pharmacists have been a trusted and accessible community resource for flu shots and other immunizations," said Georgia Lehoczky, Walgreens regional health director, and Roy Ripak, vice president for South Florida. "Every flu season is unpredictable, which is why an annual flu shot is the first and most important preventive measure to take to protect yourself and those around you throughout the season."

This campaign is for one day only. Don't miss Local 10's "Flu Shot Friday" at your neighborhood Walgreens store on Friday.

All Walgreens stores in Broward, Miami-Dade and Monroe counties are now participating.

The voucher is good for a free flu shot for those who are uninsured. The recipient must be 18 or older and must pick up the voucher in person at a Walgreens location.
