Prescription Medications

The SHC does not have a pharmacy and cannot fill prescriptions written by providers outside the Center. We do have a limited selection of commonly prescribed medications available for purchase when prescribed by a SHC provider. If your student takes a medication that he/she will need to refill at school, have your student talk with his/her medical clinician and make a plan for obtaining refills.

For more information see our Medication page.
