Pfizer and Hurricane Katrina
Jack Kemp was fond of the old phrase, “People don’t care how much you know, until they know how much you care.”
Pfizer is demonstrating real charity providing medications in the Katrina Aftermath. This generates good will which, unfortunately, can’t be listed as a line item on financials.
Hurricane Katrina Survivors:
Visit a nearby pharmacy to receive an emergency supply of your Pfizer medicines.
Victims of Hurricane Katrina who have lost access to their Pfizer medications can receive an emergency supply at any Walgreens, Rite Aid, Wal-Mart, Sam’s Club or CVS pharmacy.
From now until September 16th, Pfizer and these pharmacies are helping survivors obtain their Pfizer medicines. No matter where patients may be residing, if they are from the affected areas, they can go to any Walgreens, Rite Aid, Wal-Mart, Sam’s Club or CVS pharmacy and ask the pharmacist for help. Many independent community pharmacies will also be participating.
Patients without prescription drug coverage will get their medicines for free.
Pfizer and our partners will continue to do all we can to support the efforts of healthcare providers in the area. We are expediting donations of our medicines to relief organizations and local hospitals, and we urge any hurricane victims who do not have their Pfizer medications to contact or visit a pharmacy right away to receive an emergency supply during these difficult days.
For more information, please visit a nearby pharmacy.
Full Disclosure: I interviewed with Pfizer in the late seventies. They didn’t hire me. And I still like them. So do many others, I hope.
