Publicly Funded Vaccines Fee Increase

Publicly Funded Vaccines Fee Increase

RxA has been diligently working on your behalf to see recognition for the increased demand that COVID-19 has placed on pharmacists providing immunization services. We are happy to share that through this work, Alberta Health has agreed to a temporary increase in compensation for publicly funded vaccinations, including influenza, pneumococcal, and dTap, retroactive to October 1, 2020. Pharmacists in Alberta will receive a $2 increase for publicly funded vaccines that will be in place effective October 1, 2020 until March 31, 2021 bringing the fee up from $13 per publicly funded vaccination to $15.
