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.

The Giveaway:

Walgreens is giving away a Wellness Basket filled with goodies like Wallgreens cough drops, thermometer, hand sanitizer and a Walgreens Flu Shot Gift Card!

To Enter:

Tell me the last thing you had to miss because you were ill.

We had already bought tickets and the rooms were non refundable so we trudged on but it was not the “Happiest Place on Earth”.

I got two different strands of the flu back to back. It was miserable. I think I will get my flu shot this year

      I missed Christmas in 2008 due to emergency surgery and Christmas was supposed to be at my house that year instead everyone (including extended family) spent it at the hospital to make sure I was happy. Never will forget that. Love my family!

    • Amanda

      I missed out on day after Christmas festivities two years ago because of being sooo sick!! I was out of work for three days and almost ended up in the hospital because of being so dehydrated. It wasn’t the flu just a virus!! This year im protected with my shot and had to get it for my first semester of nursing clinicals.

      • Amanda

        Oh and this year on our trip to New York for a funeral we all ended up with some kind of bug. My nephew and sister in law could not even attend the service because of being so sick. Then, when we went to tour the city the next day everyone was sooo sick that we only spent an hour in the city hurrying around all the sites. We almost missed the flight home because of being up all night so sick and so weak!!

    • Crystal K.

      I’m not a sickly person, by nature, and even when I am I just push through it. In fact I’ve never called in sick to work in the 5+ years I’ve worked there. I guess I missed the beginning of a cookout this fall because I had to go to the doctor for a bladder infection – but I still showed up to it, just later than planned!

    • Sweetk3346

      When I am sick, I miss giving my son a kiss on the face. I do not want to spread germs but it can to resist too.

      Actually I can’t remember. I can’t afford to miss anything right now. I substitute teach and go into work armed with lysol wipes and germ X to sub for sick teachers even when I am sick.
