Free vaccination shots offered by McDonalds

This was back in 2010 I wonder if they are going to revive it?

According to Amarillo Globe News The city of Amarillos Department of Public Health and the Caring for Children Foundation of Texas will offer free vaccinations for children from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday at McDonalds restaurant, 1815 S. Grand St.

The vaccinations will include meningococcal vaccine, which is required for seventh- and eighth-graders and for college students residing in campus housing; the varicella vaccine, which is required for kindergarten and first grade and for seventh- and eighth-graders; the Tdap vaccine booster required for seventh- and eighth-graders; MMR vaccine for kindergarten and first grade; and hepatitis A, required for kindergarten and first grade.

Parents and guardians are asked to bring immunization records, and children under 17 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.

Not to worry McDonalds has you covered once you get vaccinated you get FREE ICE CREAM!


What a great idea offer a coupon to McDonalds as an incentive to get immunized! One reader wrote this humorous response to the picture above, Make sure to swing by McDonalds on your way home from getting shot up with 7 viruses and load up on some ice cream! And then go and soothe yourself with Tylenol…

That just about sums it up…
