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

Pharmacy Technician  ·  April 1, 2016

I feel that pharmacists in a retail setting are spending too much time on flu vaccinations and not making use of regulated techs who could full the gap. Retail pharmacies are reluctant to pay registered techs commensurate to their new expanded role and responsibilities. When I go to pick up a prescription, I am informed that it will take upwards of 4 hours at a minimum. This is unacceptable when a patient is in pain or a parent requires an antibiotic for a sick child after a long wait in an emergency room. Expand the role for more injections only if registered technicians can be paid what they are worth.
