The United Family’s pharmacy teams gear up for World Immunization Week

LUBBOCK The United Family’s pharmacy teams gear up as the end of April marks World Immunization Week (April 24-30), a CDC-supported initiative promoting the importance of vaccination in helping protect our communities from vaccine-preventable diseases.

Over the past few years, The United Family’s pharmacy teams have become integral to the healthcare landscape across their communities. Too often, guests in those communities do not have immediate access to a physician or clinic. So, from flu shots to the RSV vaccine, pharmacy teams have filled that gap and helped thousands through accessible vaccinations.

“Vaccines are one of the most powerful tools we have to keep ourselves well,” Tim Purser, director of pharmacy for The United Family, said in a news release. “They are proven to reduce the severity of several diseases and offer people a chance to take preventative action before they get sick. We are so proud of our pharmacy teams’ work over the last few years. They have answered the call time and time again to help their communities.”

Vaccination appointments can be scheduled by appointment or walk-in, with most locations offering evening and weekend time slots. Guests can also schedule multiple immunizations at once if needed. Follow this link for the online vaccine appointment scheduler.

In honor of World Immunization Week, guests will receive a coupon for 10 percent off their next grocery purchase up to $100 and access to a free digital vaccine record for every vaccination received at a United Family pharmacy. This discount will only be available to guests signed up for the Rewards program.
