Stores in the Dallas-Fort Worth area are facing cold medicine shortages as flu season picks up and the omicron variant of the coronavirus continues.
"The new toilet paper shortage," an employee at an East Dallas pharmacy told Fox 4 of the empty shelves.
One pharmacist at a CVS location in East Dallas said that customers with symptoms appearing to be the coronavirus or flu have been buying up cold medicine and cough syrup, while others are coming in to just stock up.
"I’m not surprised that the shelves may be thin," shopper Steve Corder told Fox 4.
