Airdrie pharmacies are in short supply of children’s medicine as the 250,000 bottles expected to arrive have been delayed.

According to government officials, these bottles of children’s medicine are the first shipment of five million bottles from Turkish manufacturer Atabay.

There has been no word on the cause of the shipment’s delay, but the shipment is expected to arrive later in the week.

Once shelves in hospitals and pharmacies have been stocked, Alberta plans to share the remaining bottles across the country.
