I have to tell you I am still in summer mode and have procrastinated all of my back to school preparations. Today I plan to get everything done. As I am making my “back to school essentials” list, it hits me like a rock: the school physicals! Oh my, at this stage I know our fabulous pediatrician is extremely busy. I call, sure enough, nothing we can do for another month. What to do, what to do? Stress level through the roof! OK, calm down, let’s get this list taken care off. Sitting in my car trying to decide where to get the school supplies, I reach for my head, it is pounding. So, I make a detour to Walgreens. I walk in and see a sign :Health Clinic …. It doesn’t resonate, I am making a bee line for the Pharmacy.
Whoa! what a beautiful store! When I get to the pharmacy the colors are already calming me. It is so organized: the drop off and pick up, a special pharmacy consulting area, and even an expedite prescription pick-up booth.
Under it, an inviting waiting area with a couple of private consultation rooms. As I start browsing a bit more, I see the signs and brochures explaining that now
Walgreens Healthcare Clinics offers school and sports physicals for kids 21 and under for just $49*. You can lower that even more by using a $10 off coupon ( get that coupon in-store and online -so now you are at $39). Don’t have an appointment? No worries, they are nice to have, but not necessary, Walgreens takes walk-ins like me! You do need to make sure you have any paperwork required by your child’s school in hand.
Licensed Healthcare professionals will be caring for your child. They are available to answer your concerns, and help with immunizations the kids might need for the school year. Just like the signage, at the store todo en English and in Español. Muchas gracias #WalgreensLatino! Of course I took care of the school health paperwork right away.
Once I was done with that I found another big sign that would cover my school supplies. Jackpot! Walgreens truly is a one stop shop for this “where did summer go”type mom. Notebooks, hand sanitizer, pencils, disinfecting wipes, backpacks, tissues and lunch boxes. Everything on my list, and teacher’s list was there for me!
I really took care of everything at Walgreens: we needed a couple photos of the kids for their new school badges. Easy peasy: uploaded them to the photo department directly from my phone while choosing the school supplies. On my way to the check-out I was able to pick them up and cross off all off my back to school list!
Without even planning it, I got ALL of my back to school needs covered, and this #CollectiveBias post done at Walgreens! Can you say lifesaver? I left with everything but my headache pills. No need for them after all.
