B.C. has recently updated its public health orders to authorize regulated pharmacy technicians to administer COVID-19 vaccines. Pharmacy technicians are eligible for PharmaCare’s administration fee, until the end of B.C.’s COVID-19 public health emergency.
The BCPhA is offering a skills training workshop for pharmacy technicians to gain hands-on experience in administering intramuscular injections. The four-hour in-person workshop was developed in accordance with the B.C. Centre for Disease Control’s COVID-19 Immunization Skills Checklist and will led by an experienced injection-certified pharmacist instructor.
The intent of the course is to prepare technicians to meet the BCCDC Skills Checklist in order to administer COVID-19 vaccinations.
