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

I think this is really pushing it and the college is no longer looking at the best interest of the patient given such propositions! The reasoning being that the community pharmacies are highly understaffed due to recent government financial cuts, and the pharmacists are working longer hours with more work. This leads to greater chances of errors and thus increased risk to the patient. During the flu season the pharmacists are finding it hard to manage the workflow, since they are not given the pharmacist overlap or extra staff. If the college sincerely thinks about the best interest of the patient, instead of the push from big pharma, they would not allow such things to happen. Give nurses this job, not us!
