Kids Help Kids Give a Shot@Life Through Immunizations!

My niece, Denice, hates shots, really she does. If you even mention the doctor, the first thing that she thinks is that, shots are coming especially right before school is about to start. She knows that these things called "immunizations" could happen. But this year she is going to the third grade and it was different, she didn't have to go to the doctor and I told her that by taking her shot "like a big girl" that she was helping other kids all around the world, she was brave and didn't even cry this time! All because she was going to be giving another child a shot@life!

I was pretty excited to know that whenever a child gets an immunization at Walgreens like for whooping cough or meningitis, they will help provide a life saving vaccine to a child in a developing country through the United Nation Foundation’s Shot@Life Campaign.



We went Back to School shopping at Walgreens for some basic school supplies like paper and pink binders (they have to be pink) and then I took her to get her required vaccines and then we had Ice Cream cones together!  

It was almost like the shots didn't even happen.  But they did and we didn't even have to have an appointment, we just went right up to the counter and because of how old she was, the pharmacist knew what Denise needed!  I handed her the insurance card and then she told me that she would send a copy of the shots right to my nieces Primary Care Physician.

I was lightweight amazed as well.

My baby was willing to be a BIG Girl if she was helping others.  It taught me an amazing lesson, "Helping other people is the driving force of what it means to be human.  And that we will help other people, even if it means doing something that causes us fears as well."

This moved me and made me think about the other ways that I could help others even if it were not easy!
