Free vitamins for all Callaway County school children from kindergarten through the 5th grade are available at the Red Cross Pharmacy in Fulton.

The free vitamins are part of a new company-wide policy of the family-owned drug store.

Rachel Lipp of the Fulton pharmacy said a registration form for the program is available for parents to pick up at the store at 600 Court St. or online at www.redcrosspharmacy.com.

Lipp said a parent of any eligible child can then bring the completed form to the Red Cross Pharmacy in Fulton to receive a punch card and the child's first free month's supply of Red Cross Pharmacy Brand Children's multivitamins.

After the registration is completed, Lipp said, a parent only needs to present the punch card to a pharmacy staff member each month for a free 30-day supply of vitamins.
