Children’s Tylenol is no longer available in drug stores as the triple pandemic of RSV, COVID, and flu hits New York City

As a tripledemic of RSV, COVID, and influenza spreads throughout the five boroughs, drug stores throughout New York City are battling to keep Children’s Tylenol and other medications on their shelves.

This holiday season, essentials like Tylenol and Robitussin for kids are almost as challenging as some of the most well-liked toys for kids.

Parents in a desperate search for a medication to lower fevers and provide respite have flocked from store to store, only to be told that pharmacies are either waiting for shipments or sold out.

Jeremy Young, 43, pacing the aisle at a Duane Reade/Walgreens in Ridgewood, Queens, in search of Children’s Tylenol, said, “I just got a text that my son has a 101 fever.”

Young reported that his 9-year-old son suffered at home after experiencing flu-like symptoms at school on Monday, where a nurse tested his temperature.

His second visit of the day was to the pharmacy.

“I was at the CVS. They have left, Young declared. “I have no idea even if another store will carry anything.”

However, in today’s world, even suffering is relative.

“He had a negative test. I am aware of it, Young sighed with relief.

He intended COVID to be negative.

Manhattan’s Upper East Side Target had trouble maintaining its children’s medication supply.

‘People are coming in the morning,’ a Target employee reported. “That’s the ideal time to purchase children’s items. Each time we put them out, they disappear as soon as we replenish the supply.
