Children's Tylenol and Advil is Back on Some Shelves

This morning we spotted Children's Tylenol and Children's Advil on the shelves of a Shoppers Drug Mart on Mount Pleasant Rd in Toronto. The shortage appears to have expanded to some areas in the US and it isn't just border towns. Shortages are being felt as far away as Marin, California. According to ABC7 news, they are seeing a 20X increase of the flu within the wastewater.
