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

Pharmacist  ·  April 1, 2016

I strongly agree with the proposed changes. Since we started doing flu shots we have had many patients in asking us to do their travel vaccines as well. Injections at the pharmacy has been widely accepted by patients and the waiting period afterward provides us with an added opportunity to discuss other health matters with patients we may not normally see or do not qualify for MedsCheks. I believe many patients would be more likely to get their vaccines if they didn't have to make an appointment with the doctor. I think this is a great service we can provide, however, remuneration would have to addressed as well.
