“Forward Pharmacy has already given over 18,000 COVID-19 vaccinations across our 5 locations and at many employer and community vaccine clinics,” Forward Pharmacy founder Matt Mabie, RPh, said in a releases. “Because we are a small business, we are agile and have been able to be extremely effective in the fight against COVID. It’s one of the many reasons why independent pharmacies are so important to the fabric of the community. We are excited to continue our work by moving to vaccinate children as quickly as possible.”
