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

Pharmacist  ·  April 1, 2016

I'm very supportive of expanding the services pharmacists may provide to their patients. BUT I don't believe being able administer additional vaccinations is a good use of our time, clinical knowledge and expertise. Working in retail, I find it would be nearly impossible to have the time to effectively and safety incorporate such services, in addition to performing our primary duties within the pharmacy. There are many healthcare professionals that are able to provide vaccinations and I believe allocating these services to pharmacists would be highly demanding and unnessesary. As for students/interns being permitted to provide vacccines- NO.
