Think of this as a public service announcement to be more mindful of staying health this season. I know with holiday vacations fast approaching getting the Flu is the last thing you want. Last year, more than 3 million US vacationers had their trip interrupted by flu-related illness. Walgreens conducted a Flu Impact Report where they discovered some surprising statistics that make me want to stay well this season!
- 100 million work days lost due to flu-related illness last season, resulting in $6.8 billion in lost wages
- One-third of respondents spent between $251 and $1,000 treating the flu last season
- 32 million school days were missed due to flu last season, which also translates to missed work days and other challenges
Last flu season… Over 1 million weddings were missed, more than 3 million vacations were canceled or interrupted, almost 5 million holiday celebrations were missed. I don’t know about you, but I don’t want to fall into one of these negative statistics this year.
Walgreens is here to help! They are giving away a basket full of Walgreens Brand StoreWallgreens brand goodies to help you fight the flu this season. There’s no planning for ill-timed illness, so these statistics from last year help to remind us how important it is to get the flu shot every year.
You can walk in any time to get your flu shot, or schedule an appointment online.
Walgreens is giving away a Wellness Basket filled with goodies like Wallgreens cough drops, thermometer, hand sanitizer and a Walgreens Flu Shot Gift Card!
Tell me the last thing you had to miss because you were ill.
