NLPB thanks our affected St. John’s registrants and the affected patients for your patience and understanding today.


Keep the following in mind if you require urgent pharmacy services:

1) Patients should contact their pharmacy & determine if they are open. If so, safely proceed to that pharmacy to consult with the pharmacist.
2) If a patient’s pharmacy is not open, please consult with a pharmacy that is open to see if they can assist.

3) If after consulting with the pharmacy the patient still requires assistance, please contact the Health line at 811 & they will provide information on other services to assist.
