Interest in travel, particularly to more far-flung destinations has seen a rise in recent months as the public’s desire to travel again post-pandemic increases. For over 10 years now community pharmacists have been routinely vaccinating against influenza and more recently COVID-19 – with a growing skillset in development, travel vaccinations are a logical next step. With travel however, vaccinations are just one component, a requirement for an in-depth travel health assessment is essential and community pharmacists are perfectly placed to provide this advice. As trusted healthcare professionals with convenient accessibility, and at a time when travel vaccination services through GP practice is reducing, community pharmacy provides the perfect solution.
Commercially this is a great service to offer to your patients and the local community, with some members generating in excess of £2,500 profit per month. See below as to how our preferred business partners can help you to drive this figure further!
