SOUTH PLAINFIELD, NJ – Twin City Pharmacy & Surgical Supply, located at 1708 Park Avenue in South Plainfield, is committed to serving the community throughout the year and during this difficult time. An ‘essential’ business, co-owner Sandy Cassio said that Twin City will remain open and continue to provide prescription and over-the-counter medication and medical supplies as well as free delivery.

According to Cassio, some insurance carriers, including some Medicare D plans, are allowing for early refills. She strongly suggests those who rely on daily prescriptions, including pills, insulin, inhalers and heart-related medications, to call the number on back of their insurance card to verify if they are eligible.

Twin City, added Cassio, is also working to keep a full inventory of meds and supplies. “We’re trying to anticipate what may be needed to help treat those who may be symptomatic,” she said. “We’ve stocked up on nebulizers and associated supplies, oxygen, inhalation medications along with symptom treating over-the-counter products such as Tylenol products, Mucinex, and Robitussin. We’ve also stocked up on some recommended preventative products including vitamin D, vitamin C, and zinc.”
