A Healthy Back-to-School Season Starts With Your TLC Medical Arts Pharmacy

Local stores slowly add backpacks, pens, and notebooks to the shelves, reminding shoppers of the upcoming school year. Many parents are even likely to get school schedules from teachers as the summer ends. TLC Medical Arts Pharmacy is here to help parents and kids to preserve their health this school year.

Kids' Health & Wellness

A healthy school year starts with an informative TLC Medical Arts Pharmacy visit to buy all necessary medications and supplements for optimum immune support. To avoid illness this year, we recommend you consider purchasing:

  • Multivitamins – The foods we eat do not give adequate vitamins and minerals to support growth and development. Multivitamins are a great way to supplement the body's necessary nutrients.

  • Vitamin C – Schools are full of germs, and getting proper doses of vitamin c is integral for your immune system.

  • Elderberry – Available in syrup and kid-friendly gummy form, elderberry helps decrease the longevity of your next cold.

  • First aid kit– Scrapes and cuts are inevitable. Check your first aid kit to see what items need restocked with a trip to your TLC Medical Arts Pharmacy.

  • Probiotics – Promote gut health and healthy digestion, no matter your diet.

A TLC Medical Arts Pharmacy pharmacist has high-quality recommendations regarding essential back-to-school health purchases.

Continued COVID Awareness

There are many new tools to deal with the COVID pandemic. Recently, the FDA approved Novavax, which uses a different technology than previously available COVID-19 vaccines. It is a two-dose vaccine recommended for people 18 and older. TLC Medical Arts Pharmacy will notify you as soon as we add this vaccine to our arsenal.

If you need a COVID vaccine or a booster shot, a TLC Medical Arts Pharmacy pharmacist will provide you with a vaccine at your next appointment hassle-free. For those with COVID symptoms, we have a variety of tests to help you ensure your exposure status safely. If you test positive, the CDC has provided a Quarantine and Isolation Interactive Tool with the most up-to-date guidelines on masking, isolation, and when it's safe to resume public activities.

August is National Immunization Awareness Month

The CDC has designated the month of August as National Immunization Awareness Month. This image depicts a cartoon bandage.

"This annual observance highlights the importance of getting recommended vaccines throughout your life," states Christina Howerton, Manager/Marketing and New Media at National Health Council.

While you may be ready for the kids to return to school, they most likely have some vaccines required to return to their classes. Your TLC Medical Arts pharmacist can discuss the CDC Child Vaccine Schedule with you to better understand which vaccinations are best (and required) for your child. Vaccine-preventable diseases include:

  • Meningitis

  • Diphtheria

  • Tetanus

  • Measles

  • Mumps

  • Rubella

Consider your health and vaccination status as you get your children vaccinated. As we head into another flu season, consult your TLC Medical Arts Pharmacy pharmacist regarding any adult vaccinations you have yet to receive. Adults are still playing catch up with their health and wellness visits due to a significant drop in primary care provider appointments over the last two years. Doctors' offices are often backed up for two to three months, making it challenging to stay updated on your vaccinations and routine visits. A TLC Medical Arts pharmacist can help you get the medical attention you require on time, protecting you from illness. Visit TLC Medical Arts Pharmacy today and schedule an appointment to update your vaccinations!
