Meijer to offer free pre-natal vitamins

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. Midwestern big-box chain Meijer will start offering vitamins to expectant mothers in all of its pharmacies starting Sunday, the company announced Thursday.

The program will offer several brand-name vitamins, including NatalCare Plus, Ultra Natal Care, Natal Care Glosstabs, Advanced NatalCare and NataTab Rx.

Meijer began offering filling prescriptions for antibiotics for free in October 2006. Since its launch, that program has filled 2 million prescriptions and saved patients more than $33 million.

Meijer operates stores throughout Michigan, Illinois, Indiana, Ohio and Kentucky.
