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

Pharmacist  ·  April 11, 2016

I believe the public is ready for the expanded scope of practice. It will make the vaccination more easily available to the public. I do not think the health system in Ontario is ready to have pharmacists prescribe the vaccines. We do not have access to patient's chart and often people do not know if they receive a vaccine or not. We require a reliable source of information to review if the patient is a correct candidate to a vaccine. I do some injections by medical directive and I am required to advise the physician when the patient receives the vaccine so it can be recorded properly.. But I would like to receive training for prescribing for minor ailments.
