US drug store chain Walgreens last week announced that, as part of its involvement in the UN Foundation’s Shot@Life campaign, it would donate three million vaccines to developing nations. The 3 million donation comes after Walgreens promised to cover the cost of one vaccine for every immunization they administered between the 4th of September and the 14th of October.
With 1-in-5 children lacking access to life saving vaccines in developing countries, this campaign has worked to increase public awareness of vaccine availability, as well as donate vaccines to some of the world most vulnerable people.
