Share a hug, not the flu bug and together we will help feed hungry Iowans this fall! Medicap Pharmacy is excited to introduce their Flu Shot campaign for the 2017 Flu Season! This year they are proud to partner with the Food Bank of Iowa.


“Proper nutrition is one of the keys to good health, and we work to ensure that everyone has access to the food they need,” said Danny Akright, communications manager for Food Bank of Iowa. “We’re thrilled to partner with Medicap Pharmacy on this unique campaign. The chance to help others in need while bolstering your own health is an opportunity worth taking!”


Medicap Pharmacy believes it is important to be involved in the community and this is an excellent opportunity to help others in the community. Through the partnership with the Food Bank of Iowa, Medicap Pharmacy will donate 12 meals to the local food bank for every flu shot given at participating Medicap Pharmacy locations from October 1 through November 15, 2017. The goal for the 18 participating Central Iowa locations is to raise 72,000 meals!


“We know the best way to protect yourself and your loved ones from the flu is by being vaccinated and by getting your flu shot at Medicap, we are able to help others in need right in our own community!” says Cheri Schmit, R.Ph., Clinical Director at Medicap Pharmacy.
