Free flu shots available through April 30; shingles vaccines through Sept. 20

 

Through April 30, vouchers for free flu shots will be available for truckers from the St. Christopher Truckers Fund.

Truckers also may get vouchers for free pneumonia and shingles vaccines. They are available through Sept. 20.

Drivers can get their vouchers from the St. Christopher Fund website.

Drivers may choose from Kroger, the Little Clinic, Walgreens and CVS to redeem the vouchers for a free vaccine. However, each location has a separate voucher, so the drivers need to plan on a location before printing the vouchers

Some locations will accept the vouchers electronically. That information will be on the St. Christopher Fund website at TruckersFund.org.

The vouchers are only for semitrailer drivers who hold a valid CDL. Licenses will be checked at each location before the vaccines are given.

If a driver has insurance, they are asked to provide that information, as often the vaccines are fully covered through insurance, especially for the flu vaccine.
