EXPLO Medication Packaging

MEDICATION PACKAGING

For safety reasons – and in order to adhere to state law – students at EXPLO may not self-administer medication.

Non-Pill Form Medication Please bring your child’s non-pill form medication (like creams or liquids in the original packaging) to the EXPLO Health Office upon arrival at EXPLO this summer. You do not need to process non-pill prescriptions with Dedham Pharmacy. Pill Form Medication Partnership with Dedham Pharmacy EXPLO requires families who live in the United States* to process all student prescription and non-prescription pill medications (taken regularly) with our pharmacy partner, Dedham Pharmacy. Dedham Pharmacy will process pills in special blister packs and travel packs, allowing EXPLO nurses to safely and legally administer students’ medication according to best practices. (In addition, the pharmacy will deliver the medication directly to the EXPLO Health Office.) *Students coming from outside the United States: Dedham Pharmacy does not fulfill prescriptions from doctors outside of the United States. Students living abroad should bring pill and non-pill form medications (in the original packaging) to the EXPLO Health Office upon arrival at EXPLO this summer. Once you have completed the medication section of your child’s CampDoc health profile, EXPLO will contact you if your child’s medication should be filled by our pharmacy. For any questions in the interim, contact EXPLO at medforms@explo.org or 781.762.7400. Ordering Medications From Dedham Pharmacy Families should visit www.dedhampharmacy.com/explo-students to create a profile with the pharmacy. EXPLO covers the processing fee associated with packaging your medication order. Families are only responsible for the cost of the medications or an insurance co-pay. There is no additional cost to EXPLO families for the pharmacy packaging service.** Please note that EXPLO does not share payment information with Dedham Pharmacy, so you will need to provide payment information directly to them. The pharmacy will not charge you for anything before communicating with you. If you have any concerns, or would prefer to pay by a different method than credit card, please contact them directly by phone (781.326.7007) or email (dedhamexplo@gmail.com).

**Medication ordered after May 15 may be assessed a late processing fee by Dedham Pharmacy.
