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

Pharmacist  ·  April 1, 2016

I believe giving an injection is a purely technical skill not a clinical skill. Registered Pharmacy Technicians should be authorized to give injections to allow pharmacists performing their clinical duties. Pharmacists should utilize their time in counseling, checking Rx, medscheck, communicating with healthcare providers and prescribing for minor ailments. Pharmacists should not waste their time in technical issues like giving injections. It is more cost-effective for a registered PA to give injections than the pharmacist.
