Walgreens, United Way of Henderson County, and FamilyWize Team Up To Provide

Flu Shot Vouchers For Uninsured and Underinsured Individuals and Families

FamilyWize Community Service Partnership and United Way of Henderson County are dedicated to building strong communities through better health. FamilyWize has been selected to help distribute 1,000 free flu shot vouchers provided by Walgreens. The vouchers are for families and individuals who are uninsured or underinsured, and otherwise unable to afford a flu shot without the voucher. The flu can have significant impact on the lives of many individuals, especially those with lower income and/or who are either underinsured or not insured. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports parents spend between $300 to $4,000 in medical expenses and miss an estimated 11 to 73 hours of work when their children get the flu. “Many of the families we support cannot afford the cost of an influenza vaccination let alone the direct medical costs and time away from work if they or someone in their family contracts the flu,” commented Dan Barnes, CEO of FamilyWize. “Families who are unable to afford proper medical coverage need support from community partners to stay healthy and financially stable.” Individuals can apply to receive a free flu shot voucher by visiting the FamilyWize website (www.FamilyWize.org). The vouchers have been provided by Walgreens as part of a nationwide program with the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), which helps to make flu shots available to people without health insurance coverage and who are unable to afford a flu shot through the program.

In addition to the free flu shot vouchers, which are available on a first-come, first-served basis while supplies last, everyone visiting the website (www.FamilyWize.org) can get a free FamilyWize prescription savings card for savings up to 75% off cost of their prescription medication. “FamilyWize has existing relationships with many families and individuals who can benefit from the free access to flu vaccinations the voucher program was designed to provide,” said Brad Wasson, Walgreens group vice president. “Over the past five years, we’ve distributed more than 1 million vouchers nationwide, helping to respond to the needs of the communities we serve, while also improving immunization rates during flu season.” The families and individuals who are eligible to receive a free flu shot voucher are subject to the terms and conditions on the voucher. “At FamilyWize we believe that stronger, healthier and happier people make healthier and better communities and we are thrilled to be working with Walgreens to help provide greater access to flu vaccinations,” stated Mr. Barnes.

 About FamilyWize Community Service Partnership

The FamilyWize Community Service Partnership was established in 2005 to help all people get the medicine they need. The FamilyWize prescription savings card is the only program of its kind to pass through 100 percent of its negotiated discounts directly to cardholders. The card is accepted at more than 60,000 pharmacies nationwide, including CVS, Walgreens, Rite Aid, Kmart, Target and Walmart. For more information, to get a free prescription card or download the free FamilyWize mobile app visit www.FamilyWize.org.
