NDP Health Critic Lorraine Michael

NDP Health Critic Lorraine Michael (MHA, Signal Hill-Quidi Vidi) wants to know why the Health Minister has apparently reneged on a plan to expand access to no-cost flu vaccines. Yesterday in the House of Assembly, he confirmed that government would only continue to cover fees charged by pharmacists to clients of the Newfoundland and Labrador Prescription Drug Program.

NDP Health Critic Lorraine Michael (MHA, Signal Hill-Quidi Vidi) is questioning government’s commitment to public health, in light of reports that the Department of Health and Community Services is backtracking on its decision last fall to provide the influenza vaccine free of charge to all who want it.

NDP Leader Lorraine Michael (MHA, Signal Hill-Quidi Vidi) says the health minister’s announcement today that pharmacists in the province can now administer injectable medications including the flu vaccine is welcome news to both pharmacists and their patients.
