Once the 40 free vaccines have been used, Sav-on Pharmacy will provide additional shots for $20—a $10 discount.

The open house, held in conjunction with American Pharmacists Month, is free and will feature tours of the L.S. Skaggs Pharmacy Complex, refreshments and information regarding immunizations, heartburn awareness programs, diabetes education and poison prevention.

Student pharmacists, assisted by licensed pharmacy faculty members, will answer questions regarding your prescriptions and over-the-counter medications.
