Bay Clinic, in coordination with Walgreens Pharmacy, has put a delivery service plan in place that will provide continued access to prescription medications for residents in the lower Puna area as the spproaching June 27 lava flow could eventually reach Highway 130.

As lava continues to threaten Pahoa and the surrounding community, the plan for a prescription delivery service will help ensure that residents in the area have continued access to their medications.

The service will launch on Monday, Dec. 29 out of Bay Clinic’s Pahoa Family Health Center, located at 15-2866 Pahoa Village Road.

Medications will be dispensed by Walgreens Pharmacy personnel Monday through Friday from the center between 3 p.m. and 6 p.m. The cut-off for same day prescription delivery is 1 p.m. Orders placed after 1 p.m. will be available for pick-up on the following workday. Delivery services will not be available on Saturday, Sunday, or holidays.

Walgreens will call patients to arrange delivery and pick-up of their prescriptions.

“This delivery service will continue as long as Railroad Avenue remains unaffected by the lava flow,” said Harold Wallace, Bay Clinic CEO. “We are working on other alternative delivery options should Railroad close due to the lava flow.”

Additional information about pharmacy delivery service information can be obtained by contacting Lovisa Baysa from the Bay Clinic Pahoa Family Health Center at (808) 965-9711.
