Simpsons Pharmacy: An update about Flu Shots and Asymptomatic COVID-19 testing
Although flu shots have recently become available, supplies are extremely limited at this time. As supplies become available, we will continue to make appointments available via our online scheduling system. For the time being, we have begun building a waiting list, which we will work down when our supply is replenished.
Note: we cannot guarantee availability of the high-dose vaccine, as those supplies are even more limited.
Thank you all for your patience and understanding. We are doing our absolute best under very trying circumstances.
Asymptomatic COVID-19 Testing
Our Virgil location has been added to the list of pharmacies participating in asymptomatic COVID-19 testing and will begin offering that service by appointment only as of Monday, October 19. Appointments can be booked online here
