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

Pharmacist  ·  April 5, 2016

NO. Although do-able, it puts a strain to an already busy and understaffed competitive community pharmacy environment. As an independent pharmacy pharmacist, it may be good but most community pharmacists work for chains and the environment is Already stressful! We do not need another reason to drop what we are doing to do vaccines, on top of flu season! If we lived in an ideal world, ocp should set regulations to ensure that chains don't stretch staff so thinly that it risks errors happening. Once adequately staffed, Yes- introduce more expanded scope. But right now, many chain pharmacists are burnt out already!
