Prescription Refills After A Storm

All of the Prime Care Family Practice providers and staff want to see all our patients and their families safe.

With Isaias expecting to impact Central Virginia, it is a good reminder to take action to prepare, including planning ahead for refilling prescriptions.

It could be difficult to fill prescriptions after a natural disaster, such as a hurricane.

That’s why it is so important that you take action to prepare and protect the prescriptions, over-the-counter drugs, and vitamins you need before any storms.

Protect yourself and others when filling prescriptions by limiting in-person visits to the pharmacy.

Sign up for mail order delivery or call-in your prescription ahead of time and use drive-thru windows or curbside pickup if available.

For more hurricane safety and preparedness tips this information from the Virginia Department Of Health offers practical information you should familiarize yourself with, ideally before a storm is in the forecast.
