It’s important to protect yourself and your family from the flu this winter and Walgreen’s is making that possible for 1,000 people.  Through the partnership with your United Way and FamilyWize, vouchers for a free flu shot are available for families or individuals.  Visit forms.familywize.org/flushot ,where people can apply to receive a free flu shot voucher on a first come, first served basis while supplies last. 

 

Stop the Flu Before It Stops You

One out of every five Americans will come down with the flu this year, but you don't have to be one of them. Flu shots are the most effective way to stop the flu before it stops you. That's why FamilyWize is working with Walgreens, United Way and other partners to offer free and discounted flu shots in your community.

 

Other Ways to Avoid the Flu

·  Wash your hands. Thorough and frequent hand-washing is an effective way to prevent many common infections. Or use alcohol-based hand sanitizers if soap and water aren't readily available.

·  Contain your coughs and sneezes. Cover your mouth and nose when you sneeze or cough. To avoid contaminating your hands, cough or sneeze into a tissue or into the inner crook of your elbow.

·  Avoid crowds. Flu spreads easily wherever people congregate — in child care centers, schools, office buildings, auditoriums and public transportation. By avoiding crowds during peak flu season, you reduce your chances of infection. And, if you're sick, stay home so that you don't infect others.
