Patients can get medications within hours
DEERFIELD, Ill. — Walgreens has expanded same-day prescription delivery, the company said Thursday. The service is now available in nearly all store locations seven days a week.
“Same day prescription delivery is one more way Walgreens is empowering patients to easily and conveniently manage their health,” Walgreens president John Standley said. “We are pleased to make this service more widely available so that patients can refill and manage prescriptions from the comfort of their own homes and have medications delivered to their doorsteps in a matter of hours.”
Patients refilling eligible prescriptions can enroll by texting “Join Rx” to 21525. After refilling an eligible prescription, patients may select same-day prescription delivery through the Walgreens website or app. Delivery fees vary by location.
Walgreens said its same-day prescription delivery provides patients with a quick and convenient option for filling prescriptions while still accessing the trusted care of expert pharmacists, as well as digital offerings via the Walgreens app, Pharmacy Chat and Walgreens Find Care. The announcement builds on Walgreens’ other convenient customer offerings, including the recently announced same-day delivery for retail products in under two hours, enabling customers to order more than 24,000 items directly from Walgreens.com or the Walgreens app for delivery when they have last-minute needs.
