Consultation on expanded role in vaccinations for pharmacy professionals

The government has published a proposal to expand the scope of patient group directions (PGD) to allow pharmacists to administer unlicensed vaccines, including any COVID-19 vaccine.

The consultation on changes to the human medicine regulations also includes a proposal that pharmacy technicians could become eligible to safely administer a COVID-19 or influenza vaccine. The consultation closes on 18 September 2020.
