Truckers get free flu shots through a St. Christopher Fund vaccine program

The St. Christopher Truckers Fund is continuing with free vaccine vouchers for the 2017-18 season, a program that is being once again supported with funding from OOIDA.
Through April 30, vouchers for free flu shots will be available for truckers. Also, truckers may get vouchers for free pneumonia and shingles vaccines. They are available 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 may choose from Kroger, the Little Clinic and Walgreens – for now – 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
Some locations will accept the vouchers electronically. That information will be on the St. Christopher Fund website at TruckersFund.org.
The vouchers are only 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.
