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

Pharmacist  ·  May 24, 2016

I believe that vaccination administration would benefit the patients greatly. I do believe there should be some legislation in place to make sure this is only done by appointment or when 2 pharmacists do overlap . If an adverse reaction were to occur, it would be difficult to manage anaphylaxis as well as continuing workflow and customer service. Many patients try to leave right after you give a flu vaccine, even though they agree at the beginning they will stay 15 minutes to be monitored. Also once corporations start advertising such services they often tell patients just to drop in and get vaccinated with no consideration for extra staffing to ensure patient safety
