Additionally, the mobile app now features a broad range of health and wellness services for customers and patients, including a 24/7 pharmacy chat, access to find and book medical care and vaccination appointments, personalized health and wellness advice, real-time flu alerts and more. The previous version of the app is already very popular, and has been downloaded more than 65 million times.

“As America’s community pharmacy, Walgreens is delivering an unparalleled experience to help customers and patients manage their health and wellbeing during the most severe health crisis of our lifetimes,” said John Standley, Walgreens president. “As always, our more than 25,000 community pharmacists remain at the core of our offering. Our pharmacists and patient care teams do far more than just filling prescriptions – they provide trusted advice, personalized support and a vast range of services.”

The debut of myWalgreens marks another milestone in the company’s digital transformation. Walgreens delivers customers more and more benefits and a highly-personalized experience by working with the very best technology and customer-insight partners, including Microsoft, Adobe and Epsilon.
