"Shortages of Many Essential Drugs … Reveal Serious Vulnerabilities": Johns Hopkins Report

A new report from the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health states that, "[s]hortages of many essential drugs amid the COVID-19 crisis reveal serious vulnerabilities in the systems for supplying and distributing pharmaceuticals in the United States". It notes that "major disruptions on the supply side diminished supply flow. Weeks before the coronavirus reached a significant threshold in the U.S., many global factories that produce drug ingredients and drugs had already shut down. Moreover, the pandemic closed international shipping ports or greatly reduced their flow of goods" and it further refers to pharmaceutical export bans as another factor that contributes to the drug shortages.

… "the supply chain will be extremely vulnerable in the upcoming months of the pandemic" …

This dovetails with a University of Minnesota report which says, "the supply chain will be extremely vulnerable in the upcoming months of the pandemic" while the American Medical Association has called these prescription drug shortages "a matter of national security". This problem is currently a worldwide one, from the USA to Canada, the UK, Australia and beyond. It is even fueling a burgeoning trade in counterfeit drugs.

… there are circumstances under which your prescription drug may be unavailable worldwide …

Drug shortages have finally prompted governments to follow the lead of their citizens and start importing prescription drugs, which is something many of our customers have been doing for over a decade. Ordering through continues to provide our customers with a significant advantage in securing their vital medications at lower costs by virtue of our international network of licensed, vetted and trusted suppliers. But there are circumstances under which your prescription drug may be unavailable worldwide, even through us. When an important pharmaceutical product you rely on is out of stock everywhere, it is frustrating for you since it can impact your health. It is also frustrating to us because we know it is our job to get you the medicine you need. It is truly crushing for our team members to experience a customer feeling let down when it comes to something as important as their health and wellbeing, even if the situation is entirely outside of our control.

Get Ahead of Drug Shortages, Price Increases and Logistics Disruptions

Drug makers are increasing prescription drug prices at a "torrid pace" in 2021 and the pandemic has impacted delivery logistics in just about every industry. With knowledge of the practical realities of the pandemic's impact on drug shortages, pharmaceutical pricing and delivery times, please plan ahead so that you're not in a scramble.

The best thing you can do to help secure inventory for your medications at the current prices is to order well in advance. This gives us more time, if necessary, to procure what might be difficult to source inventory and get it shipped to you well before you are going to run out of your supply at home. We encourage customers who may need medications in the coming months to place their orders now.
