This was told to me by pharmacists, who stated that the decision came from their corporate offices. It seems the companies have not posted the information on their websites at this time. Last year, CVS corporate refused to fill hydroxychloroquine prescriptions for Covid.
As I mentioned earlier, these decisions are unprecedented for a licensed drug. More later.
Hannaford’s pharmacies, I was informed, cannot obtain the drug from their supplier, Cardinal Health. The Hannaford corporate office has left the decision whether to dispense the drug to its pharmacists.
In any event, pharmacies that filled these scripts a week ago in Maine are no longer filling them. I am unaware of any Maine pharmacy dispensing this drug at this time.
I have been told that two out of state compounding pharmacies will provide the medication, but it takes several days, which is too much delay for someone with an active infection.
