As we all know, there is not a Coronavirus vaccination available yet. However, Moyes Pharmacy in Locust Grove would like to remind everyone of the importance of receiving their Flu, Pneumonia and Shingles vaccine this year. The number 1 reason is because it can keep you from getting the disease. If you aren’t sick, you will not have to visit your doctor and perhaps be exposed to the Coronavirus. Secondly, these vaccinations can reduce hospitalization from related complications. As we all know, many of our hospitals are at or close to reaching capacity already. Thirdly, these vaccinations are a very important tool for use in chronic health conditions. So, this year it is more important than ever for each of us to get vaccinated.
Moyes Pharmacy is always looking for new and innovative ways to serve our customers. We have recently implemented a new interactive platform called AZOVA. It is an exciting new tool we will be using to streamline your visits with us. It allows you to go in and register as a patient. You can google AZOVA login and begin the process there. You can enter as much information as you would like or as little as necessary. This platform helps us as well as our patients stay current on their healthcare needs. You can set an appointment with your pharmacist for an immunization, fill out the necessary information before you get to the pharmacy, and your vaccination will be waiting for you to come in to receive it. This expedites the whole process. However, if you prefer a walk-in, your vaccination is also available. In addition, AZOVA will send an email to your primary care physician stating that you have received your vaccination. It will also email you, the patient, a reminder of when your next vaccination is due. We can set up a future appointment or you can contact us at a later date to do so. There are more aspects to the AZOVA program that will be coming soon. We will keep you advised on those. However, if you prefer, we can help you set up your account one day when you come into the pharmacy.
Moyes is always concerned about our community and our patients. We continue to receive Coronavirus products. We strive to have all of these products in stock at all times, however, some are in short supply. We now have a limited supply of masks, gloves, thermometers, disinfectant wipes, and sprays. We have an ample supply of hand sanitizers, every form you would want. We get shipments in every day; we can take your name and number and contact you when your item comes in. We would be happy to deliver it to you also on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday.
We have another product that is essential during this pandemic. It is called ” IV in a bottle” our Biolyte is packed with vitamins and minerals to boost your energy and replenish those vital electrolytes you need to boost your immune system. We continue to have the citrus flavor. We’ve also added a delicious berry flavor. If you’ve never tried one, you REALLY should. You will be surprised how much better you feel. If you are sick, been working too hard, or over indulged while playing too hard, BIOLYTE should be your new best friend. It will help before or after your activities. So stop by and pick up a bottle. We sell individual bottles or by the case.
When you stop by to pick up your Biolyte, you can browse around to find some new country home decor items and a summer sale.
We here at Moyes Pharmacy in Locust Grove strive to be the most friendly, helpful, accessible, and knowledgeable pharmacy you visit. We wish our community and patients safe and healthy years ahead.
