    WRITE OFF:

    Walgreens, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Partner to Provide More Than $10 Million Worth of Flu Shots..

    These $30.00 shot's are free to eligible individuals.

    It's appears excess inventory and expected losses are to come.
    Unless the government bails them out with this tax deduction..

    Tata!

    • Ouch!

    • Wall Street Journal update!!

      "Earlier this month, Mark Miller, a retail analyst for William Blair & Co., cut his estimate for Walgreen's administered flu shots to a range of seven million to eight million, from as many as 15 million. The slow demand could lower first-quarter profit by four cents a share, he said".

      4 CENTS A SHARE in Lower Earning,
      On Close to a Billion shares.
      When is Walgreens Board of Directors going to WAKE UP, and start to understand that mismanagement of the Core Business unit====Failure.

      Perhaps a recap of this past year needs to be discussed going into the election..

      Thanks Mark..
      Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year...

    • For the extremely ignorant who sit on the sidelines and try to disparage a GREAT COMPANY like Walgreens you should know that we administered more than 7 MILLION flu shots in 2010 so far! Also Walgreens is not charged for any unused flu shot serum as it is a guaranteed sale! Glad to enlighten the very ignorant. LOL!

      "The timing of flu is very unpredictable and can vary from season to season. Flu activity most commonly peaks in the U.S. in January or February. However, seasonal flu activity can occur as late as May."

    • OR, it's an incredible PR idea, AND the right thing to do.

      Your post reminds me of the time Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban was fined $1 million by the league, to which he replied, (I'm paraphrasing) 'I'll get more than that in the PR, so I'm happy about it. If you're talking about the Mavs, then that's what matters.'
