PHARMACISTS getting involved in vaccinations
You'll see more PHARMACISTS getting involved in vaccinations. Identifying patients who need to be immunized...keeping track of records...even giving the shots, instead of hiring a nurse to do it.
Many physicians are comfortable passing this role to pharmacists. Some would rather not stock and administer vaccines...especially as managed care decreases reimbursement for these visits.
Pharmacies are accessible...very convenient for patients.
