We are excited to announce that both of our pharmacists at 501 Pharmacy have officially been vaccinated for COVID-19! You can follow Han throughout his entire journey on Facebook as he discusses what the shots were like, side effects, and more.
We’re Working Hard to Make the COVID-19 Vaccine Available for You at 501 Pharmacy
We have been busy signing up at the federal level and state level to receive the vaccine so we can vaccinate our patients but we still do not have a definite delivery date. We are currently not doing a waiting list. Make sure you are following us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram, and you are signed up for our monthly newsletter. This is where we will announce when we have the vaccine and we will open up a portal for patients to register online for appointments as long as you are in the correct phase. You can learn more about the vaccine at COVID19.NCDHHS.gov.
Please remember, just because you are vaccinated does not mean you should stop following the “3 Ws” – Wear a mask. Wait six feet apart. Wash your hands.
Supplements to Help With COVID-19 Prophylaxis
Here’s a list of supplements and dosing shown to help with COVID-19 prophylaxis that was published by the Eastern Virginia Medical School. Be sure to check with your doctor or pharmacist to make sure there are not any drug interactions between these supplements and any medications you are already taking. We carry all of these items at 501 Pharmacy!

- Quercetin: 250 mg once daily
- Vitamin D3: 1,000-4,000 units daily
