It's not like today where you can just make another trip back to the grocery store or pharmacy if somebody stole your food or medicine. In a post-apocalyptic scenario? Nobody's restocking the store shelves, the "low-lying fruit" is likely going to be gone within the first few months - if somebody gets an infection, the theft of stuff like antibiotics could be a death sentence, to say nothing of the obvious effects of a food shortage.
so in a country as big as america, where a low estimate is that 80% of the human population are dead, everyone is just gonna run out of medicine in a few months, not likely, i couldn't quite say how many pharmacies are in macon or storage warehouses but as a rough guess i would say loads
maybe in a few years certain things would expire and the heavily used things will be scarce but by then the clever humans who have survived should have come up with some alternatives, the only good thing about a zombie apocalypse is the abundance of everything
that has been left behind
