Amanda Peet and Jo Frost joined forces last week at the Los Angeles Walgreens Flagship store in Hollywood to support children around the globe through the Get a Shot. Give a Shot campaign.

Peet and Frost, who both serve as Global Advocates for the UN Foundation’s Shot@Life campaign, rallied Americans to get their flu shots at Walgreens this season promoting health and providing life-saving vaccines to children in developing nations.

For a second year Walgreens has partnered with the UN Foundation to donate one life-saving vaccine for every immunization administered at a Walgreens location. Frost and Peet both received immunizations in front of an audience of Shot@Life supporters.

“Last year, I traveled to Kenya with the Shot@Life campaign and witnessed firsthand the devastation that diseases like polio and measles have on our world’s youngest citizens,” said Peet. “Through this partnership with Walgreens, the UN Foundation will be able to deliver millions of life-saving vaccines to developing nations who just want to give their children an opportunity to see their fifth birthday.”

Frost, global parenting expert, best selling author and television star most recognized for her firm but respected techniques on “Supernanny,” recently released her seventh book; “Jo Frost’s Toddler Rules: Your 5-Step Guide to Shaping Proper Behavior” and joined the Shot@Life campaign earlier this year after being moved by her work with families around the world.

“All children deserve a shot at a healthy, happy life,” said Frost. “If getting your flu shot, or any of your immunizations, will provide a life-saving vaccine to a child in need then I will be first in line! Children around the world are dying from vaccine preventable diseases – that is something we all need to stand up for.”

Around the globe, every 20 seconds a child dies from a vaccine preventable disease like measles or pneumonia. The United Nations Foundation’s Shot@Life campaign helps further the work of the United Nations to expand access to these life-saving vaccines.
