Bayfield, ON

Pharmasave Michael’s Pharmacy was a busy place on the afternoon of Nov. 11 when members of the Huron County media descended on the business to watch Pharmacist Michael Ibrahim administer a flu shot to MPP Lisa Thompson. Jessica Behnke communications officer with the Neighbourhood Pharmacy Association of Canada was also in attendance to assist in the promotion of their "Healthcare Closer to Home" program. Ontario pharmacists have been allowed to give flu shots since 2012 and it is a program that more members of the public are taking advantage of. The Bayfield pharmacy administered 600 shots during the 2014 flu season. To date for 2015 they have delivered 400 shots this year. Flu shots are just one of the services that local pharmacies offer from lifestyle and diabetes management to smoking cessation programs. It is the eventual goal that emergency room visits will be reduced as pharmacists become more able to enhance front line care. (Photo by Melody Falconer-Pounder)
