On the COVID-19 BC Update on February 23rd, Public Health Officer Dr. Bonnie Henry recognized the need for immunizers to take part in mass vaccination clinics. An order was issued that authorizes pharmacy technicians to participate in the preparation of vaccines (including the drawing of doses from a vial) with appropriate training. This is within the existing scope of practice for pharmacy technicians, and we stand ready to work with other health professionals and contribute to the immunization efforts. Should the need arise for additional health professionals to be added to the pool of immunizers, pharmacy technicians are prepared to fill this role, and look forward to doing their part in ending the pandemic.
