KODOCARE Pharmacy specializes in the proper and safe administration of vaccines and has been vaccinating for over 20 years. KODOCARE was selected as one of the first pharmacies in the United States to receive the COVID-19 vaccine.
KODOCARE is a retail pharmacy in Joliet, Illinois that also specializes in serving assisted living facilities, supportive living facilities, senior living communities and community integrated living arrangements (CILA).
