Inglewood Halloween Event Aims to Boost Local COVID-19 Vaccination Rates

Western Dental and NFL Alumni Association Team Up with Walgreens to Offer Free COVID-19 Vaccinations at Family-Friendly Event 

Inglewood, CA – Western Dental & Orthodontics, one of the nation’s leaders in accessible, affordable oral healthcare, and the NFL Alumni Association-Southern California Chapter have teamed up with Walgreens to provide free COVID and flu vaccinations to anyone 12 years and older at a Halloween-themed “COVID Awareness Event.” While nearly 80% of Los Angeles County residents over the age of 12 have received at least one dose of the vaccine, Inglewood’s vaccination rate remains closer to 70% – this family-focused event is designed to bring the community together to help close this gap, while enjoying safe Halloween fun. 


A public Halloween-themed event hosted at Western Dental, where community members over the age of 12 can receive free COVID-19 and flu vaccinations onsite from Walgreens pharmacists. In addition to a live DJ and costume contest – giveaways and raffles including a signed NFL football, a television, a tablet and a FitBit, and free gift cards will be provided to the first 25 attendees. 2-time Super Bowl Champion James Washington will also be onsite to sign autographs and support the vaccination initiative.
