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

Pharmacist  ·  April 3, 2016

I disagree with expanding the type of injections pharmacists give outside the flu shot. Giving the flu shot already shifts additional workload on the pharmacist, and giving travel vaccinations would further increase the work load, especially if it is on a drop in basis.

There will be remuneration for this, but this does not directly go to the pharmacist. I may support this if some of the remuneration goes directly to the pharmacist, since this is additional work for no increase in pay and the pharmacist also has to manage all the other areas of the pharmacy.

Ideally this should also be the case for other expanded scope activities, such as for flu shots and even medschecks.
