Administering Injections

To administer injections, registrants must have completed an OCP-approved injection training course and registered their training with the College.

Pharmacists, pharmacy students and interns are permitted to administer substances specified in Schedule 1 of the regulations and vaccines specified in Schedule 3 of the regulations to a patient five (5) years or older.

Publicly-funded influenza vaccine may be administered by an injection-trained pharmacy professional (pharmacist, pharmacy student, pharmacy technician and intern) to any patient two (2) years or older in accordance with Ontario’s Universal Influenza Immunization Program (UIIP).
