Costco Pharmacy is about value: we value people, we value good service, we value low prices... and above all, we value you.

It's all part of the Costco Pharmacy philosophy of caring. Our caring starts with hiring dedicated, people-focused health care professionals. Costco pharmacists take pride in their profession. They're dedicated to your well-being. They are an integral part of the health care team, and they work toward ensuring your optimal health.

We pride ourselves on creating an environment where true patient care can occur. Each Costco Pharmacy is outfitted with private counselling areas that allow each patient and pharmacist the freedom to share detailed and vital health information to aid in the management of medical conditions.

A Costco Pharmacy is a health centre, and we're here to help you look after all aspects of your health. You can receive pharmacist consultation services such as medication review, smoking cessation planning, nutrition and weight management advice, certain immunization services (in provinces that allow it), diabetes, osteoporosis, and heart health management, and much more. Costco Pharmacy is committed to developing new and innovative professional services for the benefit of each patient.

Alberta, British Columbia, Manitoba, New Brunswick, Newfoundland and Labrador, Nova Scotia, Ontario and Saskatchewan residents can now order prescriptions online and have them delivered in the convenience of their home. Register online.

Your Costco Pharmacy Team

What makes Costco Pharmacy special is people: the people who work for us, and the people we serve. We know that in order to serve you well, we need very knowledgeable, highly skilled people, and enough of them. So when you come in to Costco Pharmacy, you will be coming in to a team of pharmacists, technicians, and pharmacy assistants dedicated to your health care.

Costco pharmacists take pride in being true health care professionals. Our pharmacists don't just dispense drugs; they dispense pharmaceutical expertise and promote health and wellness. At Costco Pharmacy, we know that the pharmacist's greatest tool is the most up-to-date knowledge and understanding of medications and their effects on your health. We invest heavily in educational conferences and programs for our pharmacists.

We invite you to come in and ask about all the different services your Costco pharmacist can provide. Many of our pharmacists have special expertise and training. For example, some Costco pharmacists specialize and have additional training in diabetes management; most of our pharmacists are injection-trained and are able to provide patients with the annual flu shot in provinces where legislation allows it.

In any province, you can ask your Costco pharmacist to do a medication review for you. Costco pharmacists in many provinces can renew prescriptions, saving you time from seeing your doctor for a prescription renewal, or adapt a prescription to better suit your needs.

Costco pharmacists don't just stay in the store, either. You may, at times, find our pharmacists out in the community making presentations on important health topics at schools and senior centres, for instance.

And all Costco Pharmacies have a dedicated team of pharmacy technicians and assistants supporting our pharmacists. They assist our pharmacists in filling prescriptions and managing the very detail-oriented work of handling and tracking medications. They help take care of the technical aspects so our pharmacists can focus on you.

Costco Pharmacy Services

When we say full service, we mean full service. Our philosophy of caring and our focus on value mean that at a Costco Pharmacy you will always receive a level of care and attention beyond what is normally expected of a pharmacy. Here are some more of the ways we serve you:

  • Computerized patient profiles: Costco Pharmacy keeps electronic records of all your prescriptions. Your medication record will be automatically updated every time you fill a new prescription or refill an existing one. As long as you fill all your prescriptions at the same Costco Pharmacy location, we can provide you or your doctor with a copy of your complete medication history at any time.
  • Drug interaction/allergy checking: Medications don't work in isolation. They can affect, and be affected by, other medications you are taking, and they affect your body. We check to make sure that your medications aren't interacting with each other, and that you aren't receiving a medication that could provoke an allergic reaction.
  • IVR service: Value means efficiency. We offer an interactive voice response system that allows you to order prescription refills over the phone and set a pick-up time so you don't have to waste any time. Watch IVR video
  • Late refill checking: It's so easy to get busy and not get around to refilling your prescription. That's why we keep track of refills being picked up late and help you understand what this means for your health. We take the time to make sure your busy schedule doesn't hurt your health.
  • Private counselling room: When you have a health concern you want to ask your pharmacist about, you may want privacy. Each Costco Pharmacy is outfitted with a private counselling area that allows you the freedom to discuss personal health information in detail with your pharmacist.
  • Health brochures: We provide a wide selection of printed information on health care concerns that you can take home with you.
  • Medication review: Costco pharmacists are highly trained health care professionals and are available for private consultations to answer questions about your health and medications. Ask your pharmacist about arranging a convenient time to discuss any health concerns. Your personal information will always be held in the strictest confidence. Watch Medication review video
  • Medication management: In provinces that allow it, your Costco pharmacist may adjust your medications and dosages by adapting your doctor's prescription to make sure that it meets your needs. Your pharmacist may also be allowed to authorize prescription refills if you run out, with your doctor's knowledge. Watch Medication management video
  • Adult immunizations: In provinces that allow it, your Costco pharmacist may be allowed to vaccinate you after filling your vaccine prescription so you can avoid waiting again at the doctor's office. Watch Adult immunizations video
  • Quality products: Costco is synonymous with value, and we give you great value on all of the products that you buy at our pharmacy: medications, herbs, vitamins, and other health care products, including our Health Balance® line of quality vitamins and herbals and our famous Kirkland SignatureTM product line.
