GPhC issues COVID-19 vaccination guidance

The General Pharmaceutical Council (GPhC) has published an online guide for pharmacy professionals and contractors about the COVID-19 vaccination programme, as well as releasing a related set of Q&As aimed at patients.

For pharmacy professionals who want to help deliver COVID-19 vaccinations, GPhC advises that they check they have appropriate indemnity arrangements in place to cover this work. The Council also advises that contractors may need to consider temporary registration for any offsite provision in a larger setting if the vaccine requires final preparation and/or assembly on site before administration (such as the Pfizer vaccine) and/or if the vaccine is being administered under a Patient Group Direction (PGD).
