FamilyWize Community Service Partnership,
dedicated to building strong communities through better health, along with Walgreens
and United Way of Yuma County are working together to help provide flu shots for
uninsured and underinsured students and families of Carver Elementary School, and
encouraging preventive measures heading into the winter months and typical peak of flu
On December 2nd at Carver Elementary School from 2:00-5:00 p.m. to United Way of
Yuma County will be distributing vouchers that are good for a free flu shot while
supplies last at Walgreens and Healthcare Clinic locations. The vouchers are provided
by Walgreens as part of a nationwide program that helps to make flu shots available to
those without health insurance coverage and unable to afford a flu shot.
Vouchers are available on a first-come, first-served basis and are subject to the terms
and conditions on the voucher.
“At FamilyWize we believe that stronger, healthier and happier people make healthier
and better communities,” said Dan Barnes, CEO of FamilyWize. “The single best way to
prevent seasonal flu is to get vaccinated each year, but there are also good health
habits that can often help stop the spread of germs.”
FamilyWize offers the following advice to help prevent the flu:
1. Clean Your Hands: Wash your hands as often and thorough as possible with
soap and water. If soap is not available use an alcohol based hand sanitizer.
2. Stay Home: Whenever possible, stay home when you are sick. Avoid school,
work, and even errands. Experts recommend you stay home for at least 24 hours
after your fever is gone.
