Before your Appointment
You must register and reserve an appointment for your vaccination. You will receive an email confirmation of your scheduled appointment. If you do not receive a confirmation, your appointment is not reserved and we will not have a vaccine for you at the clinic. Scheduled appointments cannot be transferred to other family/friends or add anyone additional.
Arrival at the Clinic
Please arrive as close to your scheduled time as possible – do not come early. If you are registered, we have a vaccine for you. Please respect your assigned time. Early arrival leads to lack of available parking and an increased likelihood of waiting outside. If you are bringing someone that is unable to wait in line, you can do so for them and we can arrange for a pharmacist to provide the vaccination in the car.
What to bring with you
- Proper ID
- Insurance Information
- Vaccination Card (if receiving your second dose)
After the Clinic
You will receive an email closer to the time of the second dose clinic with a link to register for the second dose. Per the CDC, the recommended time period for a second dose is up to 42 days after the first dose with equal efficacy.
We humbly request that you please DO NOT CALL the PHARMACY to inquire when you will receive an appointment as we don’t have the definite time yet as it depends on vaccination supply that we receive every week.
- We truly understand the needs of our community and frustration with the overall process. Just note, we are also bound to follow state guidelines and process. We are dedicated and working hard to serve our community and get everyone vaccinated as fast as we can. We appreciate your patience and understanding!
At Skippack Pharmacy, I am not just the next person in line. Going to the pharmacy was always a hassle for me after work but I look forward to my visits at Skippack Pharm! The smiles the staff have on their faces and just the fact that they ask you about your day and are genuinely concerned about your health is commendable. I have never been to a pharmacy that actually asks you "how is everything going?" "Do you feel better?.". Absolutely love it! Can't wait for my next visit!
I recently discharged a patient from the hospital who needed a less commonly prescribed medication and wanted to ensure the patient would not be without it after leaving the hospital. Spoke directly to the pharmacist-in-charge, Mak, who went out of his way to ensure the patient would receive this drug, even if it meant going somewhere else. Mak, and his team went above and beyond for this patient, as I'm sure he does for all of his clients. Kudos to the entire staff at Skippack Rx. Having interacted with many pharmacists over the years, it is refreshing to speak to another medical professional with such enthusiasm and dedication. Thank you, Mak, for your unwavering commitment to your community!
The best thing about a local pharmacy is the feeling of belonging to a family. Medical things have been crazy lately. Mac and Bonnie have been in our corner through it all. I am so grateful. Its refreshing to be able to call and talk to people who have my family's best interests at heart. Skippack Pharmacy is master of patient-centered care. Thank you.
I have known Mak personally. He is a kind of guy that would go above and beyond to make sure his customers are satisfied. He treats his customers as his own family. Definitely the best pharmacy in the area.
Best customer service I have ever received from any pharmacy I have ever dealt with. They cater to your needs and actually show that they care about you and your illness/injury/etc. I used to go to my local CVS before Skippack. Dealing with large franchises like CVS, was so frustrating that a few times I was forced to not receive my full medication. Something like that would never happen at Skippack Pharmacy. I recommend everyone to try it out, you will not be disappointed!
