Prescriptions

New this year – we’re providing twice-per-day shuttles to the Walgreens Pharmacy in Rite-Aid (Colonial Plaza) to pick up prescriptions. This shuttle program is an extension of the non-emergent medical transportation (NEMT) system already in place at Williams.

Beginning on Monday, August 26, 2019, all student prescriptions will be called into Walgreens Pharmacy in Rite-Aid. The Thompson Health Center will no longer receive deliveries of student medications.

The Shuttle will run:

  • Monday – Friday from noon – 1 pm and from 5 pm – 6 pm
  • Saturday and Sunday from 2 pm – 3 pm

The pharmacy shuttle will leave from Hopkins Hall Drive (outside the entrance for Campus Safety & Security).  While all other NEMT services require a phone appointment, this limited pharmacy shuttle does not require an appointment.

Regular NEMT users, please note that the pharmacy shuttle will be making continuous trips during the hours listed above in the same vans that are used for the NEMT. Please see the Student Health and Wellness for more details on activating the regular shuttle.

Space may be limited on pharmacy runs, so please use this service only if you have a prescription ready for pickup.

Students with their own transportation can always pick up their prescriptions at Rite Aid/Walgreens during the following business hours:

  • Monday-Friday     8 am – 8 pm
  • Saturday                9 am – 6 pm
  • Sunday                  9 am – 5 pm

Students should remember to bring their insurance card with them and be prepared to pay a copay if required for medications.
