Beginning this week, Mercy Hospital Joplin will provide a free 30-day supply of children’s multivitamins each month for a year for families that currently get their prescriptions filled at Mercy’s pharmacy.
In partnership with the Good Neighbor Pharmacy’s Healthy Kids Vitamin Program, the retail pharmacy at Mercy Hospital Joplin will provide the Good Neighbor Pharmacy brand of chewable children’s complete multivitamins for free for children ages 2 to 12 to eligible families.
Families will need to fill out a form at the Mercy pharmacy to register for the vitamin program and will receive a punch card so they can begin receiving their monthly vitamins.
“At Mercy, we are committed to providing the very best care, which includes helping our youngest community members stay healthy,” said Amanda Mayer, manager of the retail pharmacy at Mercy Hospital Joplin. “By providing multivitamins, we are helping children get on the right path to good health at a young age.”

If you do not currently use the retail pharmacy at Mercy Hospital Joplin, it is easy to transfer prescriptions from another pharmacy.
