The MDA has partnered with Walgreens for their Flu Shot Program. Since getting the flu can cause serious complications to those of us who have a Muscular Dystrophy diseases, the MDA offers free flu shots through a voucher program for members who do not have health insurance to cover the vaccination.  The flu shot is the best form of prevention.

Getting vaccinated against the flu is crucial to the health of people with a neuromuscular disease. It’s also necessary for family members and other close contacts to get the flu shot. The MDA (Muscular Dystrophy Association) also offers discount coupons for family members and caregivers of members. The cost with the coupon is $26. This is a new addition to the MDA’s Flu Shot Program this year.

MDA Flu Shot Program

Please check with your doctor before getting the shot, especially if you have Myasthenia Gravis, polymyositis, dermatomyositis, or take immune-suppressing medications. Also, the intranasal form of the vaccine is not recommended for people who have a neuromuscular disease.

You can redeem your voucher or coupon at any Walgreens and Duane Reade pharmacies, including Take Care Clinics. Thank you to the MDA and to Walgreens for providing a much needed service.

  1. Have you had any experience with flu shots and seen good results? I know that I was watching a television program last year that really made me question the value of flu shots – I know that if you are a senior they can save your life, but when you are in your thirties it might not be a good idea. Would you mind sharing your opinion on the issue?

    losing many months of hard work due to no backup. Do you have any methods to protect against hackers? recently posted..http://www.joobs.deMy Profile

  5. I rarely leave remarks, however i did a few searching and wound up here
    MDA Flu Shot Program Begins | My Chronic Life. And I actually do
    have a couple of questions for you if you don’t mind. Could it be simply me or does it look as if like a few of these remarks come across as if they are written by brain dead individuals? :-P And, if you are writing on additional social sites, I’d like to follow everything new you have to
    post. Would you make a list of all of all your communal pages
    like your twitter feed, Facebook page or linkedin profile?
