Be A Superhero: Get A Shot, Give A Shot

It’s time for a new school year, so right now at our house it’s all about the sharpened pencils, new crayons, and practicing getting up early! Something that can be less fun while prepping for a new school year is the potential of needing vaccinations. But if your child does need a shot, Walgreens is making the deal a little sweeter with their Get A Shot, Give A Shot campaign.

Every time you go to Walgreens and get an immunization for your child, Walgreens will help provide a life-saving vaccine to a child in a developing country through the United Nation Foundation’s Shot@Life Campaign. I decided to use this campaign as a learning opportunity for Carter, to start a discussion about being brave and helping others.

Carter is already a big help to me at home, helping out with his little brother and sister. He does chores like emptying the dishwasher and picking up toys. He’s a very good example to his younger siblings!

We decided that it takes a superhero to be brave enough to get shots, and also to help out others to be able to get their own shots!

I explained how immunizations can help to keep kids healthy and safe from maladies such as whooping cough or meningitis, and that’s why sometimes we get shots.

Carter had to get shots awhile back, to be ready for Kindergarten. SIX, actually. His baby sister Vanessa had just gotten two shots of her own, and he had seen her get them without even crying (she just gave the doctor an evil eye). So when it was Carter’s turn, he told me he was going to be brave just like Vanessa had been. Well, he stuck it out (no pun intended) for the first 3-4 shots, but then he couldn’t hold back the tears any longer.

We talked about how brave he had been then, just like a superhero! We also talked about how superheros help others, and how getting a vaccination at Walgreens means that another child will get his or her own immunization, when they wouldn’t have otherwise.

Carter thought about that and then said, “That’s just like when we bought toothbrushes and toothpaste to give away to kids who don’t have them!”

Yup, just like that!

Walgreens is your easy stop for immunizations and back to school items this year. No appointment is needed, and most insurance is accepted. Walgreens pharmacists will even report back to your primary care physician. The Get A Shot, Give A Shot program is aimed at school-aged children, ages 7 and up.

Now just to work on that “getting up early” part…being a superhero is tiring!
