ALERT: We Can Help With Hospital Medication Shortages. 
 Do you work at a hospital or know someone who does? Contact Us

On April 21, 2020, our pharmacies were temporarily granted clearance by FDA to provide hospitals with compounded replicas of commercially available drugs that are on shortage. This means that if a hospital needs bulk quantities of drugs that are on shortage, we are able to compound them without obtaining patient-specific prescriptions. This guidance is in direct response to a letter submitted to FDA by the pharmacy advocacy groups NCPA, the Alliance for Pharmacy Compounding, and the American Pharmacist Association in which they asked FDA to issue guidance providing enforcement discretion for pharmacists to compound products that are “essentially a copy” of an FDA-approved drug that FDA identifies may be or is anticipated to be, in shortage during this public health emergency. You may find the guidance here.

  • If you are employed by a hospital in need of medication that is hard to access or that is on shortage, please contact us at info@vlspharmacy.com. Email your full name, position at the pharmacy, and the best phone number to reach you. We will respond quickly to all correspondence. 
  • If you know someone who works at a hospital that is in need of medication that is hard to access or is on shortage, please contact us at info@vlspharmacy.com
