Boots the chemist may help ? If your surgery is open today then they can send over electronic script (I guess you can do that in the USA too but will probably cost more than 9)

Not sure what time you need to be at the airport but Asda used to sell them over the counter. Not sure if they still do but might be worth finding a local one and phoning to ask if you have enough time.

Your surgery may have an emergency number if Boots cant helps ? But I always cash in my prescriptions at Boots as I know they can access my info anywhere and I have had emergency stuff for then before

Good luck and have a great flight

I've asked for an emergency inhaler at the chemist before when out and forgotten mine no prescription needed, was struggling with breathing at the time. They just asked a few questions and then gave it to me.

Do the Boots at the airport provide a dispensing service?

If there is a pharmacist on duty you can check if they provide the urgent repeat medication service (URMS) - there is just a quick form to fill out. Or you can ring 111 and ask them to do an electronic prescription to that particular Boots. Or you can speak to your doctor's out of hours service (sometimes just 111 anyhow) and ask them to do the electronic transfer.
There are options.

You will have to pay (9) if you normally do, or if you have no proof of exemption.

You would also need to remember to ask your normal pharmacist to make sure that you are still set up to them when you get home. (many times people have had prescriptions filled electronically on holiday and a couple of months down the line find their prescriptions are available in Bognor etc...)
