Walgreens Steps Up To Help Jobless!

I was very impressed when I read this article on Yahoo yesterday. Walgreens will be offering free care clinics at their Take Care Clinics to those who lose their job and health insurance after 3/31/09. The free clinics will run Mon-Fri from 11am to 3pm. The clinics will offer free treatment for respiratory problems, allergies, infections and skin conditions, among other ailments. Free services won’t include free checkups, vaccinations or other injections, but things that people may need from urgent care center or even an emergency room. Spouses and children are also eligible for free services if they are also uninsured. Find the Take Care Clinic closest to you here. Although demand is uncertain the free clinic hours are expected to run through the end of 2009.
