Vicks has helped relieve cold and cough symptoms for over 125 years. It started in 1894, when a young pharmacist named Lunsford Richardson opened a store in Greensboro, NC to address the needs of his community. When someone you love is sick, you want powerful symptom relief that you can trust. Getting you back to feeling healthy and back on your feet is their top priority at Vicks. The Vicks legacy is about more than just cold and flu medicine. It’s about giving families the opportunity to continue life—even on sick days—for more than 100 years. The Vicks legacy of care and trust continues today.
