St. Christopher Fund makes it easier for truckers to get a flu shot

| Thursday, November 12, 2015

Flu season started in October and can last through May. A number of schools, workplaces, clinics and pharmacies make the vaccine available. But over-the-road truckers don’t have the convenience these locations offer. With support from OOIDA and Con-way – now XPO Logistics – the St. Christopher Truckers Development and Relief Fund has made arrangements with two major health retail businesses for a free flu shot program for CDL holders.

SCF has teamed up with Walgreens for CDL holders presenting the voucher to get a free flu shot at any of their locations. Those vouchers are available now. SCF has also teamed up with The Little Clinic, located inside select Kroger, King Soopers, JayC, Dillons and Fry’s Stores, to provide trivalent flu shots for truckers with a voucher. Those vouchers are available at the OOIDA tour truck, now on the road. 

No appointment is necessary. You don’t need to be an OOIDA member. All you need is your CDL.

The truck will be on the move this fall and is now rolling through Arizona, Nevada and other western states. Click here for the schedule. 

The flu shots are paid for by the St. Christopher Fund, thanks to donations from OOIDA, Con-way, Walgreens and The Little Clinic.

If you don’t cross paths with Jon and the OOIDA truck in your trucking travels, you can email contact@truckersfund.org and the St. Christopher Fund will send you one.
