Community pharmacies in the UK to offer private Covid vaccination service

Pharmadoctor, a company which provides clinical service packages to pharmacists, has announced the launch of the UK’s first private Covid vaccination
service via its nationwide network of partner community pharmacies.

For the first time, people who are eligible for the Covid-19 vaccine (those aged 12 years and over) will be able to get the shots from their local independent
pharmacy by paying as little as £45 per jab, the company said.

The delivery of the new service is expected to start by 1st April at the latest by “thousands of pharmacists” using the Pharmadoctor eTool.

To encourage pharmacists to sign up early to provide the service, the company is offering its package at half-price until 31st March.
