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

Pharmacist  ·  April 6, 2016

As a pharmacist I do not think that we should be administering vaccines. First of all I don't think it is safe because most people do not want to wait at the pharmacy for 15 minutes after getting their injection to make sure that they don't get an allergic reaction from it. Second, giving an injection is a technical role which I think is a waste of a pharmacist's time that could be spent counselling patients, assessing drug interactions, making pharmaceutical opinions, and the many other critical thinking tasks that we are trained to do.
