There are three pharmacies in Grinnell: Hy-Vee, Medicap, and Walmart. Student Health and Wellness (SHAW) can give you a ride to and from your pharmacy.
Medicap and Hy-Vee will deliver your prescriptions to SHAW upon request. The first time you pick up a prescription, you will need to visit the pharmacy to put a form of payment on file. Please note that Walmart does not deliver. It is important that you call for your refill a few days before your current prescription runs out.
