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.

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.
