We have been living in a COVID world since the Fall. A large number of us down-sized our Thanksgiving and Christmas celebrations. The extended family was broken down into smaller units. If we were lucky enough, we did have some live contact, but we Zoomed our way through the holidays. Thankfully, Zoom removed the time cap on family meetings during the two holidays. Nevertheless, there were long stretches of aloneness. Hugs have been hard to come by.
The best Christmas presents for us all were the two vaccines that were released. Finally, it seems that pharmacists and their staff can get the vaccination. Once we get our second dose, the next step will be to begin vaccinating eligible patients, and if the opportunity presents to test for the virus, as well. More vaccine is becoming available and the challenge for distribution will be to vaccinate as many patients as possible.

NPSC started out as a buying group. It has however become much, much more. Whenever we have a problem with our wholesaler, Northeast solves it. Whenever we have a question with regard to a third party, Northeast answers it. When my business needs guidance, NPSC helps to point us in the right direction. We don’t know what we would do without them!
P.S. Their annual Expo is not to be missed!

Just a note of thanks to Karen and all my friends at Northeast. Although my recent Medicaid audit was very taxing, it was my network of pharmacist friends who helped make it flow better. Thanks for hooking me up with fellow NPSC pharmacists who all had plenty of helpful hints to help me prepare for this audit. I cannot believe that an independent pharmacist today could exist without a service like Northeast. Once again, please express my thanks to everyone at Northeast and to the helpful pharmacists who assisted me.
