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

Pharmacist  ·  April 4, 2016

Absolutely scope of practice for pharmacists in Ontario needs to expand to help reduce burden on the health care system and expanding injection services only makes sense. In our practice we are already doing several of these vaccinations under physician medical directives and the service is well received. Uptake would be even greater with reimbursement through OHIP, similarly to the influenza vaccinations. I would also like to see Vitamin B12 added to the list of injections. The ability to prescribe certain vaccinations would also be a nice addition in the future.
