“When the going got tough, the tough — in this case retail pharmacies across the country — got going.”
The Drug Store News March 2021 cover story takes a deep dive into the essential role pharmacies are playing in COVD-19 vaccinations, with insights from key players across the pharmacy industry.
“Frankly, we see this as an exciting time for our nation’s pharmacies,” said John King, CEO of OmniSYS, a Dallas-based technology company that works with pharmacies. “And, we think that what is going on right now is going to be a great catalyst for change as more retailers realize the importance of their pharmacies to the general public. Covid showed that there is a shortage of primary care doctors and that the pharmacy will have to step up to help fill that void.”
King from OmniSYS was just as direct. “No one is more trusted, affordable and convenient than the pharmacy,” he
said. “We do not see any way forward without the pharmacist being involved.”
