Full-bodied pharmacists, pharmacy students and trainees can only administer publicly funded flu vaccines under Ontario`s Universal Influenza Immunization Program (IUPI). This legal scope for the administration of influenza vaccines depends on the community pharmacy`s annual agreement with the ministry. If one of the department`s requirements cannot be met, or in other circumstances, pharmacists would require the granting of powers to administer influenza vaccines. Pharmacists, pharmacy students and trainees can administer vaccines for 13 diseases that can be accessed by each patient from the age of 5, under certain circumstances defined by the regulations. To perform injections, filers must have completed an OCP-approved injection course and training at the university.
