Stater Bros. pharmacies is giving free antibiotics throughout its 27 locations in Southern California. The free antibiotics will be given to anyone with or without health insurance who provides a prescription. The offer also includes refills. The offer began on November 1 and includes:
- Amoxicillin, which is generic antibiotic for Amoxil
- Trimeth/Sulfa, which is the generic antibiotic for Bactrim or Septra
- Ciprofloxacin, which is the generic for Cipro
The officials of the supermarket chain say that they are the only chain in the region offering the free antibiotics program. The program, according to the company, is aimed at ensuring that affordable and accessible health care is available for all their valuable customers.
Two years ago, Stater Bros. introduced the Free Diabetic Medication Program, which offered and continues to offer Type II Diabetes drugs when providing doctor prescriptions. The supermarket chain is also maintaining its $4 generic Prescription Program, which offers prescribed medication for $4 for 30-day supplies with a choice of more than 300 common drugs. For 90-day supplies, the price is $10 under the same program.
The supermarket chain, which has 167 supermarkets, was established in 1936. The first store was located in California in the Yucaipa area. It is now the largest private employer in Riverside and San Bernardino County. It is also Southern California’s’ largest privately owned chain of supermarkets. The California-based supermarket chain was given the title of “Best Full Service Supermarket Chain in Southern California.” The supermarket chain is looking at the increasing health care rates that have made accessing medication almost impossible for some people. The supermarket has said that it wants to help customers get some cost savings.
