The Kroger Co. operates nearly 2,200 retail Pharmacies in 37 states, each staffed with caring professionals dedicated to helping people lead healthier lives. Our Pharmacists provide more than just prescriptions and over-the-counter medications; they provide advice and support. They are a trusted source of information. Our Pharmacists are professionally trained to administer vaccinations too. Let us help you protect your health! We offer a variety of clinical programs like immunization administration, Medication Therapy Management, Disease States Health Coaching, Point of Care Health Screenings and CDTA (select stores). We have a very robust offsite immunization program and partner with many local employer groups and senior living centers.

We also offer all the services you would expect from a full-service community pharmacy such as; basic compounding, OTC and Herbal consultations, and the ability to have meaningful consultations with your patient population.
