HealthTab Supports Patient Testing in the First Rexall® Pharmacy Walk-In Clinic

Avricore Health Inc. (TSXV: AVCR, OTC: AVCRF) ("Avricore Health" or the "Company") is expanding its innovative point-of-care chronic and infectious disease screening and health-data management platform, HealthTab™, further into the Canadian pharmacy ecosystem with one of Canada's largest pharmacy retailers, Rexall Pharmacy Group ULC ("Rexall").

"With Pharmacies' expanded scope and rising patient demand, the need for the clinical pharmacy practice is greater than ever," said Hector Bremner, CEO of Avricore Health. "We're excited to work with Rexall pharmacy teams to support positive patient outcomes through real-time insights into their health."

Patients began accessing testing today in the first Rexall Pharmacy Walk-In Clinic in Sherwood Park, Alberta. HealthTab will be offering both the Afinion 2™ blood-chemistry analyzer as well as the ID Now™ molecular platform by Abbott Rapid Diagnostics, giving patients quick access to their test results, and allowing for immediate consultation with their pharmacist.

As HealthTab has grown over the last year, it has helped pharmacists screen patients at risk for developing diabetes and cardiovascular conditions, as well as support those already diagnosed to better manage their conditions. With the addition of Rexall within the HealthTab network, patients will have easier access to care and be supported to make meaningful and impactful changes to their health.
