Survey confirms COVID-19 impact on pharmacy operations
A survey conducted by the American Pharmacists Association shows that high patient demand and staffing shortages are affecting pharmacists' ability to safely administer COVID vaccines. 27% of respondents reported that they had closed or reduced hours due to staffing shortages. 78% of respondents indicated workload exhaustion during the pandemic (up from 22% prior to the pandemic). 40% indicated that they did not have adequate support staff to safely offer COVID vaccinations.
