I also think pharmacists should prescribe them, especially if they are already doing travel clinics. I believe we can do more than administering vaccine and I can see pharmacists manage minor ailments to ease the pressure on the healthcare system and emergency rooms.
There does, however need to be a compensation model that rewards the pharmacist. Unfortunately we are not adequately compensated for administering vaccines and patients are not willing to wait. We already have customers questioning us why we cannot inject vaccines other than the flu shot.
There are many healthcare professionals that are able to provide vaccinations and I believe allocating these services to pharmacists would be highly demanding and unnessesary. Labour cutbacks make it difficult to maintain the current level of Pharmaceutical Care provided. I believe pharmacists are ready to fully embrace the expanded scope of practice.

Administration of vaccines will be a good start towards that and I am in full support of the proposed amendment. Let's have fun? Canadian expert shares findings WB west of London open again following multi-vehicle collision. Other patient that i have suggested to get vaccinated before traveling have forgotten to mention it to their physician and went on their vacation without the necessary vacination.
I think pharmacists have the knowledge already to go ahead with this. Thank you.
