Pharmacy Services

We support the Department of Health in its public health mission by providing vaccines, pharmaceuticals, pharmaceutical services, and biologicals to other divisions within the Department of Health and to local health departments.

About Us

Pharmacy Services serves all 119 local health departments by providing pharmaceuticals, vaccines, and biologicals which enable the health departments to effectively treat communicable diseases, treat chronic diseases, and to respond to public health emergencies such as pandemic influenza, bioterrorism events and natural disasters that displace citizens with a loss of their medications. 
We do not provide services to the general public but only to patients of the local health departments.  Pharmacy Services complies with all state and federal laws and is prohibited from competing against public retail entities for non-public health treatments under the federal Robinson-Patman Act.
