A Healthy Back-to-School Season Starts With Your Riverside Village Pharmacy

National Immunization Awareness Month
August 05, 2022

As you prepare to take the kids back to school and purchase their school supplies, ensure their health and wellness are added to the to-do list. Your Riverside Village Pharmacy is here to help you and your loved ones maintain your health throughout the school year.

Kids' Health & Wellness

For the most significant health advantages, visit Riverside Village Pharmacy to purchase needed over-the-counter products for your child. To support your immune system, we recommend purchasing:

Multivitamins – The foods we eat don’t contain enough nutrients and vitamins to support recommended growth and development. Multivitamins are affordable and effective in helping the body’s necessary nutrients.
Vitamin C – Germs abound at school; help protect your kids’ immune system.
Elderberry – Available in syrup and kid-friendly gummy form, elderberry helps reduce the duration of colds.
First aid kit– Cuts and scrapes are inevitable when the kids are around. Restock your first aid kit during your upcoming trip to your Riverside Village Pharmacy.
Probiotics – Promote gut health and proper digestion, saving you from bloating and abdominal pain.

A Riverside Village Pharmacy pharmacist has quality recommendations for more items to add to your back-to-school health and wellness shopping list.

Continued COVID Awareness

Over the past year, there have been exciting new developments when it comes to preventing the spread of COVID-19. Recently, the FDA approved Novavax, which uses a method of vaccinating individuals for COVID. Still conducted in two doses, it is recommended for people 18 and older for health and safety precautions. Riverside Village Pharmacy will update you on when you can get your vaccination!

Our Riverside Village Pharmacy pharmacists still administer vaccines by appointment for local patients. For anyone experiencing COVID or flu symptoms, we provide at-home tests to keep you tested and safe. If you test positive, the CDC has provided a Quarantine and Isolation Interactive Tool with the most up-to-date guidelines on masking, isolation, and when it’s safe to resume public activities.

August is National Immunization Awareness Month

"This annual observance highlights the importance of getting recommended vaccines throughout your life," states Christina Howerton, Manager/Marketing and New Media at National Health Council.

A pharmacist from Riverside Village Pharmacy can discuss the CDC Child Vaccine Schedule with you to help bridge the health gap with missing immunizations. We hope to keep your children protected and vaccinated as they begin school. Along with COVID, vaccinations can help prevent:

  • Meningitis
  • Diphtheria
  • Tetanus
  • Measles
  • Mumps
  • Rubella

Immunization awareness is essential for adults too. As we head into another flu season, consult your Riverside Village Pharmacy regarding any adult vaccinations you need. Adults are still playing catch up with their health and wellness visits due to a significant drop in primary care provider appointments over the last two years. Meanwhile, doctor’s offices must schedule office visits for as far as two to four months. Don’t wait for an immunization that your Riverside Village Pharmacy pharmacist can administer. Come in today for a vaccine consultation!
