At Similkameen Pharmacy, we recognize the importance of understanding and being understood.  Several of our staff members speak another language in addition to English and thus can address some communication gaps.

We provide a range of immunization services. Whether traveling abroad or simply wanting protection against the flu, patients can consult with our pharmacists to become up-to-date with their immunizations, fill their vaccine prescriptions and receive their injections onsite.

For those with vascular compromise, a certified compression stocking fitter is able to accurately supply compression stockings as prescribed for our customers.  Selena, a registered pharmacy technician, coordinates a walking group in spring and summer to promote cardiovascular fitness and a sense of community and belonging.
