Dental News: Penicillin Shortage in Toronto?

I've been getting reports from at least two pharmacies (One a large chain and one a small independent) that there is a shortage of Penicillin. My initial inquiries suggested that the earliest resolution to the shortage will be in December. Until then, it's been recommended to me to switch to different antibiotics to help alleviate the situation. I'll be following up on this story in the upcoming days and weeks.

Take care,
