Unichem


Anytime we go into a fullscale lockdown here most of our local shops close down except those that are classed as essential services such as the Chemist. This one usually has a staff member sitting outside to take peoples prescriptions while they wait. The reality is that people still need their medication.

Linking up with Weekend Reflections and The Weekend Roundup.

I have to go to one too every month for my prescriptions.

It was the same here.

Where would we be without our chemists? Let us hope you do not have to go back to lockdown for our world pandemic. If everyone is vaccinated the pandemic would go away.

I heard of one chemist where the script was sent to them direct from the doctor, then you made an appointment time and sat in your car until the chemist brought it out to you. Having most people vaccinated is going to make things so much easier.

There used to be a plant shop there.

...I find the term Chemist interesting, here we call this a drug store!

Phase 3 here, my Bro just told me.
How come they don´t get it under control and weeee... no instructions from my teamleader for starting my job come Monday.

Also... you can march into grocery stores with but a mask. Logic?

Our chemists always have a line outside. It's definitely an essential service.
We get our prescriptions by SMS now but still have to go and get them filled

At my medical practice they will send the scrip down to the pharmacy where they could be collected or they would deliver.

In Sweden prescriptions nowadays are sent online from the doctors to the pharmacies. I think with online ID you can also order your prescription medicines online and either get them delivered or pick them up at the pharmacy. I've never made use of that yet, though.

The pharmacy we use has a drive through window. No mask required. Of course we still wait in a line of cars. :) Happy Saturday!

Nice photo! Sometimes I wonder if I live in the only place in the world that never forced people to wear masks or had a lockdown.

Maori Rock Carvings

One from when we were in Taupo earlier this year is this Maori Rock Carving which is only accessible via water on a boat. We booked a chart...
