A Healthy Back-to-School Season Starts With Your Texas Rxsolutions and Compounding Pharmacy
This season, school supplies are already beginning to hit the shelves of your favorite stores. Parents receive their kids' classroom assignments and bus schedules as the next school year approaches. The time has come for families to prepare for a new school year, including the students' health in their life and household. Your Texas Rxsolutions and Compounding Pharmacy is here to help parents and kids to stay healthy, happy, and knowledgeable about their health for school and beyond.
Kids' Health & Wellness
A healthy school year starts with a trip to your Texas Rxsolutions and Compounding Pharmacy for every medication and vitamin you might need. For a healthy start to the school year, consider picking up the following for you and your family:
Multivitamins – Your everyday foods do not contain adequate vitamins and minerals to support proper growth and development. Multivitamins are a great way to supplement the body's necessary nutrients for lifelong health.
Vitamin C – Germs abound at school, and vitamin c can help protect your kids' immune system.
Elderberry – Available in syrup and kid-friendly gummy form, elderberry helps reduce the duration of colds.
First aid kit– Always be ready for scrapes and cuts. Check your first aid kit to see what items need to be restocked with a trip to your Texas Rxsolutions and Compounding Pharmacy.
Probiotics – Gut health is always essential, and probiotics support digestive health and keep stomach bugs at bay.
Stop by the pharmacy counter for a recommendation from your Texas Rxsolutions and Compounding Pharmacy for more items to add to your back-to-school health and wellness shopping list.
Continued COVID Awareness
As the COVID pandemic continues, we developed several helpful tools to fight off infection. Recently, the FDA approved Novavax, which uses updated techniques compared to previously released vaccinations. This new two-dose vaccine is recommended for patients 18 and older. Texas Rxsolutions and Compounding Pharmacy will notify you as soon as we have a vaccine available.
If you need a COVID vaccine or a booster shot, Texas Rxsolutions and Compounding Pharmacy has many appointments available for vaccinations. If you find yourself with any common COVID symptoms, we have test kits well-stocked and available for purchase at our pharmacy. The CDC has a Quarantine and Isolation Interactive Tool with the most up-to-date masking and isolation standards for optimum safety measures if you test positive.
August is National Immunization Awareness Month
"This annual observance highlights the importance of getting recommended vaccines throughout your life," states Christina Howerton, Manager/Marketing and New Media at National Health Council.
Due to the pandemic, your child is likely overdue for several vaccinations required for their education. Texas Rxsolutions and Compounding Pharmacy will discuss the CDC Child Vaccine Schedule with you to help bridge the health gap with any missing immunizations. Vaccine-preventable diseases include:
Immunization awareness also applies to adults, not just children returning to school. As we head into flu season, consult Texas Rxsolutions and Compounding Pharmacy with any questions or concerns you might have with adult vaccination. Many adults also miss critical vaccinations due to prolonged wait times for appointments with their primary care physician. Don't wait for an immunization that your Texas Rxsolutions and Compounding Pharmacy can administer. Come in today for an adult vaccine consultation!
