If you’re looking for free vitamins, you’re in luck. There are plenty of adult multivitamins, prenatal vitamins, and vitamins for kids that are given away for free.
Some of these vitamins come from the government’s health agencies, others from pharmaceutical companies, non-profit organizations, and even private companies. Some of them are available throughout the country, while others are only available to residents of a certain area, city or state.
Without further ado, here are 25 resources I’ve found so far.
