At Primrose Pharmacy, both Lorraine and Jackie are authorized to administer drugs by injection. Both carry a Certificate of Injection as approved by the Alberta College of Pharmacists.
You can now purchase your injectables and have it injected at the pharmacy which prevents any hassle of transport to your doctor’s office and eliminates storage issues as some injectables require refrigeration.
The pharmacist can administer some injections such as vaccines, travel immunizations, pre-filled injectables, intramuscular & subcutaneous injections and we now offer and administer the annual flu (influenza) vaccine.
No appointments are required.
Appointments can be prearranged or we can often administer an injection on a walk- in basis. You can either visit our pharmacy or call us 780-487-7270 to discuss dates that are open.
