Pensacola" and is the ambassador of
UN Foundation's Shot@Life campaign, recently received her annual flu shot at the
Walgreens NYC flagship store at as part of the "Get a Shot Give a

vaccinations to children across the globe.
"When I get my flu shot @Walgreens, I am
also donating a life-saving vaccine to a child in a developing country," says Amanda.
The number of children dying every
year from preventable diseases in developing countries is nearly equal to half
the children entering kindergarten in the U.S. That's why Walgreens has partnered with the UN Foundation's
Shot@Life campaign to provide up to 3 million vaccines to children in need to
help protect against diseases like measles, pneumonia, polio and
rotavirus. From now through October 14,
Walgreens will donate the value of one life-saving vaccine (up to 3 million) to
children in developing countries, for every flu shot administered at its
pharmacies, or Healthcare clinic or Duane Reade pharmacy across the country.
