Queensland pharmacies celebrate vax success

The Pharmacy Guild’s Queensland branch is celebrating the success of its vaccination program for state government employees.

Some 250 member pharmacies administered 1527 flu vaccinations during the eight-week program. The pharmacies shared in $41,712 of additional revenue.

Employees from five departments were eligible for the program, with bookings managed through an online platform.

“We look forward to growing the corporate vaccination program in the future, to include more eligible employees as well as participating member pharmacies,” branch president Tim Logan said.

Queensland pharmacists interested in taking part in the program in 2018 should email the branch’s business support team.
