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

Yes, we should definitely be allow to do other injections besides flu. We should have been allowed to do all the I.M injections from the start in the first place. I feel that Vitamin B 12 injection should be on the list as well. Since the actual act of injection is more technical in nature, I think that pharmacy technician should be allowed to do flu injections given the proper training. As for students and interns, they should be allowed to do the basic flu injection only after they have been properly trained and have practice I.M. techniques on actual people. ( Passing a course from the faculty without even injecting each other with normal saline definitely does not qualify.)
