Resources for you and your patients

Here we've curated a collection of the most relevant links to help independent community pharmacies through the COVID-19 pandemic. Whether you need resources for communicating with patients or the latest guidance from the CDC and WHO, this is your destination for the most valuable coronavirus-related information, tools and support.


Supporting You as a Trusted Provider

Our Government Affairs and US Policy team has met with hundreds of federal and state legislators and staff, and is working closely with NCPA, APhA, NACDS and other pharmacy coalitions urging Congress, Governors and state legislators to: 

  • Recognize pharmacists as healthcare providers 
  • Remove barriers to expand pharmacist COVID-19 testing and treatment 
  • Promote immunization authority 

Pharmacists and patients are the most powerful voices on this topic, so we strongly encourage you to visit the Our Independent Voice Action Alerts page to join us in advocating for the future of independent pharmacy.

Persistent testing is critical to help slow the spread of COVID-19, and independent pharmacies have played an important role in making those tests as accessible as possible throughout the pandemic. By identifying positive cases and offering guidance right in the pharmacy without the need for an appointment, independents have been able to help those individuals get ahead of the condition and protect the community.

Your role is even more crucial during flu season because the symptoms of COVID-19 are so similar to those of influenza. Many people are concerned and confused when they start to not feel well and they want guidance on what to do next since different diagnoses call for different courses of action. This is your opportunity to position your pharmacy as a go-to healthcare destination in your community by offering quick, convenient, point-of-care testing for both conditions at the same time.

With the latest assay from BD Veritor™, you can test for SARS-CoV-2 and Influenza A and B from one patient sample and deliver reliable results in minutes. Plus, one-button functionality and rapid digital readout simplifies the testing process even further, allowing you to give your patients answers fast along with treatment options and quarantining requirements.
