Walgreens in Tanzania with Shot@Life
We always hear kids say “when I get bigger…” or “when I grow up…” But what if your children lived in a world where the common thought is “if I get bigger” or “if I grow up?” In Tanzania and other low-resource countries, vaccine-preventable illnesses account for 20% of all childhood deaths.
Walgreens Donates Vaccines
With a collaboration between the U.N. Foundation, Walgreens has developed the “Get a Shot, Give a Shot” program which has so far enabled them to supply over three million vaccines to people in need. Now children in Tanzania are able to say to themselves, “when I grow up I want to be,” well, whatever they aspire to be!
