Let's take a quick course in Pharmacy 101 with special guest Debby Johnson, a third-generation pharmacist and former President of the California Pharmacist Association. We'll dive into important topics related to the world of pharmacy, including the importance of having your prescriptions at one pharmacy, the dangers of drug interactions, the differences between brand name and generic medicines, and the pharmacist's specific roles and responsibilities. We'll also discuss two very timely topics: the value of receiving a flu shot during the COVID-19 pandemic and the role pharmacists will play in distributing the forthcoming COVID vaccines.
