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

Pharmacist  ·  April 1, 2016

I think having pharmacists administer additional vaccines is a great idea in general. However, I do not feel comfortable immunizing against yellow fever, typhoid, Japanese encephalitis, or rabies. I also believe that if this service is offered at pharmacies it should be on an appointment basis to ensure that the proper time is set aside to discuss the vaccine and provide the vaccine to the patient. I also think a refresher on administering SC vaccines would be essential before this service could be offered at the pharmacy.
