How We Almost Missed The First Day of School

1st Day of School

A few weeks before my daughter started school, just after we turned in her paperwork, we were notified that her vaccinations were incomplete. Somewhere along the way, blame it on being the first child, I had missed a set. We had just a few short weeks before school started and the next available doctors appointment was two months away. According to school officials, she wouldn’t be able to start without them. To be honest, it broke my heart a little. Don’t we all dream about that first day of school? The new backpack, the pictures, dropping them off at class and watching them meet new friends? I didn’t want either of us to miss that.

Fortunately, I ended up getting really lucky, and after some scrambling was able to squeeze in on a cancellation. But what frustrated me was the lack of options. Pediatricians in our area are always booked solid so I wish I had known that just 15 minutes away there was a Target Pharmacist. I was surprised to learn that filling prescriptions and offering vaccinations is just one of the many services they offer. 

7 Ways Target Pharmacies Make Your Life Easier

  1. Flip the Script 
    You can transfer to a Target Pharmacy in-store, online or from your phone. 
  2. Pharmacy Rewards 
    Target Pharmacy Rewards are SO simple – no points to count or track. After 5 prescription fills (vaccinations count too) you will receive 5% off a whole day of shopping (in-store and online).
  3. $4 Generics
    Brand-name equivalent prescriptions are available for less.
  4. Prevention/Vaccines
    No appointments required to get the shots you need. 
  5. ClearRx
    The bottles are easy to use and color coded. 
  6. PetRx
    Target Pharmacy stocks many pet prescriptions.
  7. Text Alerts
    Get a text as soon as your prescription is ready. 

My favorite feature has to be that Target Pharmacies offer moms one more way to multitask. Instead of waiting at the drive thru or in a lobby, I can use that time to pick up ingredients for dinner, class snack tomorrow or yet another pair of tights for dance class.
