LUBBOCK, Texas — United Supermarkets here is offering free antibiotics and prenatal vitamins as part of its “Free to Feel Better” program at Market Street pharmacies. In addition, through a new partnership with Dallas-based MedicalEdge, Market Street has extended its services at Living Well ExpressCare Centers.
The new arrangement enables the fully licensed staff to examine, diagnose and treat symptoms of common illnesses such as strep throat, sinus infections and the flu during visits that typically last no longer than 15 minutes, as well as refer serious or urgent cases to one of their specialists in the Dallas-Fort Worth area.
“We’re proud to offer guests some relief from the burdens and pressures the cold and flu season can bring as well as the other medical necessities throughout the rest of the year,” said Tim Purser, business director of pharmacy for United. Services provided by MedicalEdge at the ExpressCare clinics include glucose testing, pregnancy testing, school and camp physicals, diabetes screening, blood pressure checks and common vaccinations.
The “Free to Feel Better” program covers 60 of the most prescribed generic antibiotics and up to a year’s worth of prenatal vitamins at no cost. A valid prescription is required.
The “Free to Feel Better” program is available at any of Market Street’s six locations or at the in-store Living Well ExpressCare clinics at the Coppell, Frisco and Plano stores.
