Health & Wellness

Now, more than ever, we are doing what we can to ensure the health and safety of our communities by giving them the resources they need to maintain their health throughout the COVID-19 pandemic.

In 2020, we stepped up for the health of our communities and continue to do so every day. We donated 750,000 KN95 masks to first responders and frontline workers and hosted free flu shot clinics across the Midwest to protect thousands of people, regardless of insurance coverage. We quickly responded to the need for widespread COVID-19 vaccinations by partnering with the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services and state governments to begin administering doses in early 2021, even being named an initial federal retail pharmacy partner by the State of Michigan in January. We have since been named a federal retail pharmacy partner in every state we serve. In late April, after administering one million vaccine doses at our in-store clinics, our pharmacies launched a walk-up clinic vaccine program making COVID-19 vaccines available at all of our stores every day.

We have built strong relationships with organizations like the United Way, the Red Cross, state and local governments, as well as local hospital systems that allow us to act quickly in times of disaster or crisis and work as long-term partners for growth in times of normalcy.

For example, to combat the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020 in our local communities, we made $4 million in emergency donations to the United Way. Embodying the spirit of serving their communities, our team members contributed an additional $2 million as part of the United Way Workforce Campaign, an optional payroll deduction program benefiting local United Way agencies.
