City of Spokane, Walgreens offer free vaccines

A collaboration between the city of Spokane and Walgreens is offering pneumonia, whooping cough, chicken pox, shingles, MMR, meningitis and influenza vaccines free of charge to anyone who needs them.

All Walgreens locations throughout the city will administer the vaccines daily during regular pharmacy hours, but age and health-related restrictions may apply. The free vaccine program is targeted toward people who are uninsured or under-insured. No appointments are necessary.

“Spokane is a very compassionate community, and that includes its community pharmacies,” said Spokane Mayor David Condon in a statement. “Walgreens has stepped up to provide assistance that can help improve the health of many in our community.”

The partnership was announced on the city’s Give Health Care day, part of its 12 Days of #GivingSpokane initiative.
