Pharmacy closures disadvantage Western Mass patients – Boston News, Weather, Sports

EASTHAMPTON, MASS. (WHDH) – Residents of East Hampton are now being forced to leave town to fill their prescriptions.

Last month, a local CVS closed for repairs after a storm, and recently the Walgreens also closed due to staff shortages. Those who were due to get their prescription from the now-closed locations have been told to go to Northampton or Southampton.

In a statement, Walgreens said, in part, “In communities impacted by staff shortages, we are adjusting hours with the goal of creating minimal disruption to customers and patients.”

Walgreens is facing similar shortages across the country, the statement said.
