Medicap Pharmacy is extremely proud of their Flu Shot campaign for the 2017 Flu Season. This fall, they were able to provide over 61,100 meals to the Food Bank of Iowa, with the donation staying right in the local community.

“Medicap’s flu shot campaign was an excellent way to support hunger-fighting efforts in the communities they serve,” said Michelle Book, President and CEO of Food Bank of Iowa. “At the same time, these flu shots help to protect our society’s most vulnerable, including many food insecure Iowans, from illness.”

Medicap Pharmacy believes it is important to be involved in the community and this was an excellent way to help local residents in the same communities their pharmacies are located. Through the partnership with the Food Bank of Iowa, Medicap Pharmacy donated 12 meals to the local food bank for every flu shot given. The 18 participating Central Iowa locations raised a total of $15,285, which will provide 61,140 meals over the 10 Iowa counties.

“We are thrilled that people chose Medicap Pharmacy as their choice for their flu shot this year. With the help of our local communities, were able to help others right in their own county!” says Cheri Schmit, R.Ph., Clinical Director at Medicap Pharmacy.

Although this campaign is over, it’s not too late to get your flu shot and protect yourself and loved ones from the flu. Visit for a location near you!
