NEW Pharmacy Hours

Given the state of emergency and CDC/Public Health guidelines on COVID-19 (or coronavirus), TFC is reducing its pharmacy hours as follows until further notice:

  • Monday: 12:00pm – 3:00pm
  • Tuesday: 4:30pm-7:30pm
  • Friday: 9:00am -12:00pm

The Free Clinics Pharmacy stocks a variety of generic medications, as well as some name-brand medications.  Brand-name medications tend to focus upon the specific health needs of uninsured persons, especially diabetic medications and supplies, mental health medications, and medications for asthma or other breathing problems.

Please see eligibility guidelines for TFC services.

Current Pharmacy Clients

If you call a refill in to the pharmacy and they do not answer the phone, please leave a message including your name, phone number, and the reason for your call. They will address your refill as soon as possible. Refills typically take at least 3 business days. While pharmacy hours are reduced in response to COVID-19, current refills will be extended to 3 months (90 days) whenever clinically possible. Updated 3/20/2020
