Walgreens is underscoring the importance of prescription preparedness for its pharmacy patients in areas that may be influenced by Hurricane Matthew, presently threatening the southeastern U.S.
The company is offering the following tips for assuring prescription needs are met for those potentially influenced by the storm.
- Follow evacuation orders. Get to a safe location first and refill your medications at the nearest pharmacy. This allows you to avoid potentially long lines at your local pharmacy, and you won’t need to needlessly delay your evacuation. Walgreens has nearly 8,200 locations nationwide and all locations can access a patient’s records, making any Walgreens your neighborhood Walgreens. Individuals can also use the Walgreens mobile app to refill prescriptions and pick up at a nearby pharmacy. Patients can find the nearest Walgreens store by visiting Walgreens.com, through the Walgreens mobile app or by calling 1-800-WALGREENS.
- Take a waterproof bag with your current medication – even if the bottle is empty. The information on the prescription label will assist pharmacy staff with refill requests. Heat, humidity and sunlight can degrade the effectiveness of medicine, so try to protect it from extreme weather conditions.
