Feedback for Proposed Changes to the Pharmacy Act (Administration of Vaccines by Pharmacists)

Pharmacist  ·  April 1, 2016

Vaccines is something that Pharmacists are educated on and have the capacity to do. Given the convenience for patients it's a no brainer that this would be beneficial for health care as a whole. My concern has to do with the remuneration of this. The value of Pharmacists is absolutely diminished in comparison to what other health care professional make for administering flu shots, I hope that the same does not happen for the proposed vaccines. It would help to justify and support Pharmacist overlap and workflow issues associated with administering vaccines. Unlike flu shots, these vaccines should not be a loss-leader. Pharmacists are worth more than that.
