Walgreens Offering Measles, Mumps & Rubella (MMR) Vaccinations Daily at All of its Locations throughout Tennessee, Arkansas, Kentucky and Mississippi

Tennessee health officials recommend vaccination as states see
reported measles cases

DEERFIELD, Ill.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Walgreens is offering vaccinations that provide protection
against measles, mumps and rubella (MMR) at all of its pharmacies
throughout Tennessee, Arkansas, Kentucky and Mississippi as health
officials in Tennessee recommend vaccination due to a number of reported
measles cases. Vaccinations are available daily at Walgreens pharmacies
and Healthcare Clinics with no appointment necessary and may be covered
by insurance.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC),
measles is a highly contagious virus that spreads through the air
through coughing or sneezing. People at high risk for severe illness and
complications from measles include infants and children under 5 years
old and adults age 20 and older. Pregnant women and those with
compromised immune systems may also be at risk.

“We support the recommendations of health officials and stress that
vaccination is the best protection against measles,” said Gene Hoover,
regional healthcare director for Walgreens. “Walgreens pharmacists and
Healthcare Clinic nurse practitioners play an important role by
providing more convenient access to vaccinations and other preventive
services throughout the community.”

Walgreens pharmacists and Healthcare Clinic nurse practitioners can
administer MMR vaccine to individuals ages 7 and older in Mississippi
and Tennessee; ages 14 and older in Kentucky; and ages 18 and older in
Arkansas.*

restrictions may apply.
