St. Christopher Fund vaccine program begins

| Tuesday, September 19, 2017

The St. Christopher Truckers Fund is continuing its vaccine voucher program for the 2017-18 season.

As of Oct. 1, free flu shots will be available for truckers. The program lasts through April 30. Vouchers for free pneumonia and shingles vaccines are also available as of Oct. 1 and will continue through Sept. 20, 2018.

Drivers can get their vouchers from the St. Christopher Fund website or from OOIDA’s Jon Osburn on the Association’s tour truck, The Spirit. Drivers will have a choice of 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. Select locations will accept the vouchers electronically. That information will be on the St. Christopher Fund website at truckersfund.org.

The vouchers are solely 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.
