District Newsletter, 1/13/22


Haller’s Pharmacy has been on the front, innovatively leading since the pandemic began. Testing, then vaccines at the pharmacy and pop-ups throughout the community. Their partnership with Washington hospital allowed them to store vaccines in coolers that otherwise would have been wasted due to storage space challenges. Their partnership with Fremont Fire department resulted in several pop-up vaccine events to better serve Tri City folks. Former owner Gary Basrai, and current owner, Jasmine Basrai (his daughter) keep the family tradition of service to their community consistent and dependable.
