Posted on September 20, 2016 15:36 pm CDT

With Fall and Winter right around the corner, the flu won't be far behind. The most effective way to combat the flu is with your yearly flu vaccine. Medicine Store Pharmacy has flu vaccines in stock and now available. The pharmacy can bill Medicare, Medicaid and most private insurance plans. Call us at (417)881-8841 to set up an appointment. Or, you can stop by the pharmacy as walk-ins are accepted... however, the best times for walk-ins are as follows: Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesday mornings and Friday mornings. Most third party insurance plans don't charge a patient copay. Have no insurance? No problem... cash price is $30. Feel free to call the pharmacy if you have any questions.

"While attending pharmacy school, I knew that someday I wanted to open my own pharmacy. I envisioned a pharmacy where I could talk to people one-on-one. By listening and learning about their health concerns, I could use what I had learned to help them. I graduated from pharmacy school in 1978 and went to work for a chain store, then a hospital, then an independent pharmacy, all of which gave me valuable experience. But I still had the desire to open my own store.

In 1984, at age 30, my dream of owning my own pharmacy came true. With the help of a friend who was willing to take a chance on me and loan me the start-up money, The Medicine Shoppe opened its doors and filled its first prescription on July 9th, 1984. My goal was to serve my patients and customers to the best of my ability. Over the years, I have carefully built a staff that shares those same goals.

Even though our name has changed, 27 years later the entire staff of Medicine Store Pharmacy still has that same goal in mind. We are here to serve you.

Thank you to all of my loyal customers: past, present and future. "Jerry Popek, Owner, Medicine Store Pharmacy
