In an effort to educate Laredoans about the importance of staying healthy a local pharmacy is handing out vitamins for local kids. Families have been lining up at the Medicine Shoppe Pharmacies around town to get their free supply of vitamins for their children. No purchase is necessary. All they have to do is go by the pharmacy and sign up for free vitamins for kids ages 2-12. “Vitamins are important, because not all meals we eat contain vitamins and minerals that we need, so vitamins insure a child is getting what they need.” Parents can get the vitamins for their kids at all three Laredo Medicine Shoppe Pharmacies in Laredo and also the location in Zapata.
