Where can you have your injection/ immunization administered?
Prior to 2009, the only place to have receive your injection was at a doctor’s office or a public flu vaccination clinic. Now pharmacists can take advanced training in order to be certified to administer injections! The pharmacists at Stafford Pharmacy have completed their certification and are able to administer injections!
Do injections require a prescription from your doctor?
The annual flu shot is the only injection in Alberta that does not require a prescription from a physician. Stafford Pharmacy holds an annual flu vaccination clinic FREE to all Alberta residents. Watch in store for clinic dates!
Travel vaccinations and others such as those listed on the front page require a prescription.
