The Region: pharmacists are recruited for vaccines

by admin

More staff is needed and so the Directorate General for Welfare of the Lombardy Region has appealed to

hundreds of pharmacists (about 200 in the Bergamo area) who have attended the fitness courses, so that they make themselves available to vaccination centers, offering 6 euros of compensation per injection.

“We are in favor and will solicit our members starting tomorrow (today, ed) – says Ernesto De Amici, president of the Pharmacists Order -. After all, for months we have made ourselves available for the administration of vaccines, also as volunteer pharmacists of Civil Protection ». It is difficult, however, to know how many will respond to the appeal of the Region: “On the one hand, Ats, with foresight, is moving to activate vaccination mini-hubs in collaboration with local authorities, which will be precisely the pharmacies to manage – explains De Amici -. On the other hand, however, if this project goes through, we will not be able to guarantee availability elsewhere, given that in recent months we are already overworked ».
