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

Pharmacist  ·  April 2, 2016

Pharmacists have demonstrated a benefit to the people of Ontario by increasing the number of locations for influenza injection especially to those who lack family physicians and those in under-serviced areas. A further expansion of services can continue to benefit the people of Ontario by providing the services that they're already requesting. When the influenza vaccine was rolled out there was a lot of education related to the vaccine beyond injection technique. I'd like to see equal levels of education provided for the other vaccines, so that all pharmacists with injection accreditation will feel equally comfortable administering these new vaccines.
