Tampa, Florida (PRWEB) August 07, 2015
Getting your children ready for the new school year involves more than shopping for school supplies. Benzer Pharmacy will be giving away a free 30-day supply of children’s vitamins for a safe and healthy school start.
The pharmacy will be attending this years Back To School Coalition of Hillsborough County on Saturday August 8, 2015 at Blake High School and Saturday August 22, 2015 at Middleton High School.
Lindsay Wall, Clinical Pharmacist at Benzer Pharmacy advices parents to ensure that their children’s immunizations are up to date. “Check with the school or healthcare provider to make sure your children are not missing any doses,” she says.
Parents are advised to schedule their kids’ annual health examinations before school starts. This includes health, dental, or vision checkups. That way you know they are off to a healthy start and they won’t have to miss school later in the year.
While in school, parents should encourage their children to wash their hands as this is the most effective way to avoid catching or spreading germs. “Simple soap and water is the best, and it is important that children scrub their hands for 20 seconds. A good rule of thumb is to have them sing ‘Happy Birthday’ or the alphabet song while doing it,” explains Lindsay.
In addition, review with your children on basic safety rules for going to and from school, by means of bus, car, bike or walking. Talk to children about their fears and anticipation for the new school year.
Parents are encouraged to collect their coupon for a free 30-day supply of children’s vitamins at the back to school fair and redeem it at Benzer Pharmacy located at 2812 W. MLK Jr. Blvd, Tampa, FL 33607. The pharmacy will also give out a goody bags to participants at the fair.
