Today, Walgreens and the United Nations Foundation announced a special expansion of the Get a Shot. Give a Shot® program, which will double donations of life-saving vaccines in support of #GivingTuesday. For every immunization, including flu shots, administered at a Walgreens pharmacy, Healthcare Clinic or Duane Reade pharmacy, the value of two life-saving vaccines will be donated to a child in a developing country through the UN Foundation’s Shot@Life campaign. This will apply to all immunizations administered at Walgreens beginning Black Friday, Nov. 27, through #GivingTuesday, Dec. 1.
Walgreens received a perfect score of 100 percent on the 2016 Corporate Equality Index (CEI), a national benchmarking survey and report on corporate policies and practices related to LGBT workplace equality, administered by the Human Rights Campaign Foundation. This marks the 11th year Walgreens has earned a perfect score from the CEI index.
