Pharmacist vax trial misleading: patients

The Queensland Pharmacist Immunisation Pilot — initiated by the state branches of the Pharmaceutical Society of Australia (PSA) and the Pharmacy Guild of Australia — began earlier this month targeting patients not covered by the National Immunisation Program.

Nurse practitioner services chain Revive Clinic said it had been contacted by patients complaining that despite booking in to have a nurse provide their vaccination, they had unwittingly ended up participating in the pharmacist trial.
