CVS/pharmacy to Launch Flu Shot Donation Campaign Benefiting the USO During Week of Veterans Day
Date:11/7/2012

WOONSOCKET, R.I., Nov. 7, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- In recognition of Veterans Day on November 11, CVS/pharmacy, the nation's leading retail pharmacy, is reminding all Americans, including veterans, active duty troops and their families, that the best way to protect themselves this flu season is to get a flu shot.

To honor our military heroes and their families, CVS/pharmacy will donate $3 to the USO for every flu shot given at CVS/pharmacy and MinuteClinic during the week of Veterans Day, November 11 to November 17, up to $100,000. The Company has pledged a minimum donation of $50,000. The USO is a private, nonprofit organization with the mission to lift the spirits of America's troops and their families through its many morale-boosting programs and services. Last year, CVS/pharmacy donated $50,000 to the USO through its flu shot donation program.  

"We are pleased to partner with the USO again this year to remind those who protect our country to protect themselves with a flu shot this season," said Papatya Tankut, RPh, Vice President of Pharmacy Affairs, CVS Caremark.  "Veterans Day week is an ideal time to get vaccinated before flu season peaks, because it takes a couple of weeks after the vaccine is given to provide full immunization against influenza." 

"Every year, people across the country get flu shots to keep themselves healthy," said USO SVP and Chief Development Officer, Kelli Seely. "Thanks to CVS/pharmacy, Americans can take care of themselves and our military heroes at the same time. This donation, made possible by CVS/pharmacy and its customers will help the USO provide troops and their families with programs and services they need most and to us, that is the best way we can say 'thank you' this Veterans Day."
