No more paper. The PharmaDoctor Hepatitis B eTool service allows authorisation to dispense a vaccine following an automated risk assessment, it is primarily designed for pharmacists to offer the hepatitis B vaccine to travellers and to patients whose occupation, puts them at risk of exposure to blood so the market for this service is quite wide. The eTool offers the following options: HBVAXPRO® 5, 10 and 40 micrograms, suspension for injection in pre-filled syringe Hepatitis B vaccine (rDNA), and Engerix B 20 micrograms/1 ml Suspension for injection in pre-filled syringe Hepatitis B vaccine.
This eTool automated PGD package as with all PharmaDoctor services, comes with online training, an assessment and a marketing guide, which includes materials such as letters that you can use to make businesses and organisations aware of your vaccination clinic.
The hepatitis B vaccination is a requirement for workers in various fields (laboratory workers, care workers, prison staff etc) so there are plenty of organisations you can advertise the service to. It may be that it is very convenient for a company to send a group of new staff members to your local pharmacy for vaccination. Similarly, immunisation against the hepatitis B virus is often needed by volunteer workers or those travelling to and planning to reside in countries where the disease is endemic.
