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

Pharmacist  ·  April 4, 2016

It makes sense to expand beyond flu shots.( I would delete the injection for yellow fever.) I am concerned however about being only one person in the pharmacy on a weekend and expected to administer vaccines by the retail chain. It should be mandatory that if vaccines are to be given, that at least a pharmacy clerk or technician should be working on the same shift. It was very difficult giving flu shots when the phones were ringing and people were at the counter. That was only one vaccine. When you are dealing with various different vaccines, it makes things more complicated and increases the potential for error if you don't have backup personnel.
