When you are sick, just about the last thing you want to do is stand in line at a pharmacy to pick up your prescription. That is especially true during flu season when everyone around you might be spreading germs. Even washing hands frequently can’t fully protect you from airborne viruses.
That’s why having the pharmacy deliver your medicine to your front door is a wonderful service. Kerr Drug (a sponsor of this Web site and The People’s Pharmacy radio show) is doing just that in selected pharmacies in North Carolina. We suspect that once people realize how convenient (and cost effective) this free service is, they will wonder how they ever got along without it.
Kerr Drug also offers medication therapy management services. People can call the pharmacy and ask to speak with a pharmacist to get advice on how and when to take their medicine. Equally important, they can also learn about drug side effects and interactions. People with chronic conditions such as diabetes can get comprehensive education on how to stay healthy.
We wish all pharmacies would offer convenience and comprehensive care like Kerr Drug. We’re proud to be affiliated with this organization.

    Many drugstores offer drive through service. This would be another good way to avoid other people’s germs.

    That is a wonderful service. Sounds like the kind of personal service that my parents’ generation remembers. We don’t have Kerr Drug here, but an alternative to the coughing/sneezing line is available at many pharmacies – the Drive-Though.
