THE ROLE OF PHARMACISTS DURING THE PANDEMIC

Pharmacies play an important role in health-care with the provision on medication and other health requirements. With the covid-19 pandemic surge currently overwhelming our frontline workers, came a call from Pharmacist Nalini Dial for government to allow them to assist in the vaccination rollout.

Pharmacists already administer a number of tests to patients and she believes that those with senior experience, should be able to lend further service. Ms. Dial joined us as we got her views on the Minister Deyalsingh's stance on the sale of antigen rapid tests at pharmacies.
