Yep, that's right...Walgreens is bribing customers with a 5000 bonus points to shoot themselves up with the flu or WC vaccines...how low can pharmie go? What's the biggest payout at your local pharmacy for getting a flu or WC vaccine?
5000 Bonus points to Vax
They do some kind of incentive every year. If not points than a gift card or coupns etc. All chain pharmacies seem to do it. The smaller mom and pop ones do not seem to.
Anyway as gross as I find this, I don't think it is really changing anybody;s mind yk? Those of us that choose nOT to get the flu vaccine or any other adult vaccine are usually pretty clear on WHY we are making that choice and no lame incentive is going to change that. Those people that are on the fence are on the fence for safety and efficacy reasons usually and will usually not be swayed by a coupon. Its the people that are planning on getting it anyway that may be swayed by this. Perhaps they will get it earlier, or there rather than their doctor's office.
I can't imagine it actually helps vaccine uptake overall.
