Teton County Sheriff's Office

Responding to the coronavirus pandemic, the Teton County Sheriff’s Office said it will launch a prescription drop-off program Monday for residents 60 years old or older.

“This allows these members of our community to fill their prescriptions while limiting their exposure to high-traffic areas in the community,” Sheriff Matt Carr said.

Qualifying community members can take advantage of the program by following these steps:

1. Call your pharmacy and refill your prescription.

2. Tell your pharmacist that the Teton County Sheriff’s Office will be picking it up.

3. Pay for your prescription over the phone. If you are not able to pay over the phone, talk with the sheriff’s office about making other arrangements.

4. Find out when the prescription will be ready for pick-up; allow one to two days for pharmacy processing.

5. Call the Teton County Sheriff’s Office at 733-4052 between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. Monday through Friday.

6. Tell them your name, address, phone number and date of birth.

7. Tell them the name of your pharmacy and date and time when your prescription(s) will be ready.

A member of the sheriff’s office will contact you when your medication is ready to be dropped off.

The delivery service will be available as long as the sheriff’s office has the staffing to meet the requests.

Im so grateful to learn that the Sheriff's dept.will deliver prescriptions. I thought I had planned ahead but now realize I won'r have enough meds to get me through this crisis. I could call on a friend to pick them up but why expose them? Thanks, Matt!
