Community Clinics to Recieve $5 Million in Free Shots for the Uninsured

CVS Caremark and Direct Relief USA announced today that nearly 350 community clinics and health centers across the country have agreed to participate in CVS Caremark’s donation of up to $5 million in free shots to patients who lack health insurance.  

The participating clinics and health centers will identify uninsured individuals from their existing patient populations and provide them with a free flu shot voucher, which is redeemable at any CVS/pharmacy or MinuteClinic location.

Direct Relief USA is a non-profit organization that works with 1,100 clinics and health centers in all 50 states, providing them with free medications and supplies for their low-income and uninsured patients.

Most of the facilities in Direct Relief’s network are affiliated with either the National Association of Community Health Centers (NACHC) or the National Association of Free Clinics (NAFC).

Direct Relief USA is the largest non-profit program providing donations of medicine to patients without insurance at clinics and health centers nationwide, and was awarded the prestigious Power through partnerships award from the National Association of Community Health Centers.

CVS/pharmacy has more than 7,000 locations and MinuteClinic has more than 500 locations inside select CVS/pharmacy stores.

A list of participating community clinic and health center locations can be accessed at http://info.cvscaremark.com/newsroom. Free  flu shot vouchers will be available for their current patients beginning this week until supplies last.

Customers can make an appointment to receive a flu shot from a CVS pharmacist at the time, date and location of their choice by using the My Flu Shot Scheduler available at www.cvs.com/flu  or by calling toll-free 1-888-FLU-SHOT (1-888-88-GRIPE for Spanish).

MinuteClinic nurse practitioners are available to provide vaccinations 7 days a week during regular business hours with no appointment required.
