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

Pharmacist  ·  April 4, 2016

To Whom it May Concern,

I would be against adding any further vaccines to the expanded scope of practice for Pharmacists for the following reasons. If patients are going through the trouble of getting a prescription for the proposed vaccines, they should just get vaccinated by the physician while they are at the office. You should also ask yourself if Pharmacists really have the time to do this, as well as everything else they are expected to do safely throughout the duration of their shift. I believe the answer is no, as most Pharmacies are staffing themselves cheaply, there is only ever one Pharmacist on shift at one time, in most cases. Until you propose changes to how many Pharmacists are looking after a set number of prescriptions over a set amount of time, I would say no to this proposal.
