Reminder: Pharmacists may not immunize individuals less than nine years of age against seasonal influenza with provincially funded influenza vaccine, as per AHS' 2013-2014 Influenza Vaccine Agreement for Community Providers.
Even if you don't administer vaccine, you can still play a key role in immunizations as educators and facilitators. We urge you to provide your patients with accurate information regarding influenza immunizations, including referral to an AHS Public Health immunization clinic, particularly for those patients in high risk groups. You can find more information on the AHS website.
