Measures to Ensure Drug Supply - Alberta Health

March 21, 2020

Alberta Health has implemented the following measures to proactively protect the drug supply for Albertans.

Effective immediately the expectation is that prescriptions are provided in quantities that do not exceed a thirty (30) day supply. Reducing the quantity provided for each prescription will limit product shortages and allow continued access to medications for all Albertans. We are working closely with Alberta Health in all aspects of best managing the Covid-19 situation and as such, will be supporting this expectation in our pharmacies.
