CVS closes pharmacy in Port Lavaca
Prescriptions were transferred to a nearby Walgreens
PORT LAVACA, Texas – CVS closed its pharmacy at 325 South Highway 35 Bypass in Port Lavaca on June 2, 2022. All prescriptions were transferred to the nearby Walgreens at 1302 N. Virginia Street in Port Lavaca. CVS said it made sure patients had uninterrupted access to pharmacy care. Additionally, CVS said all store employees were moved into comparable roles at other nearby CVS locations.
“Maintaining access to pharmacy services in underserved communities is an important factor we consider when making store closure decisions. Other factors include local market dynamics, population shifts, a community’s store density, and ensuring there are other geographic access points to meet the needs of the community, including COVID-19 testing and vaccinations,” said Amy Thibault, Lead Director, External Communications, CVS Pharmacy. “We’ll continue to provide the area with outstanding service at our locations in Victoria, Bay City and Portland.”
CVS also offers prescription home delivery to eligible patients through CVS.com and the CVS Pharmacy app to provide additional convenient access to medications.
