Vaccine Roll-Out – Storesupport is Here to Support Inoculations
After many months of waiting, COVID-19 vaccines are finally being widely distributed across Canada and many people are eagerly waiting to receive their shot.
Research from Abacus Data shows that 1 in 3 Canadians want to be vaccinated as soon as possible.
While you can receive a COVID-19 vaccine from a hospital or a clinic, vaccines are now also being distributed at your local pharmacies.
CTV reported that Canadian pharmacies are primed and ready to start administering the vaccines at their facilities. In fact, Shoppers Drug Mart has informed all levels of government that the company’s more than 1,300 locations need only 48 to 72 hours to be fully prepared for mass inoculations.
Ontario announced that pharmacists will start administering the AstraZeneca vaccine at 330 different locations to customers aged 60 to 64.
Quebec also announced the availability of COVID-19 vaccines at 350 pharmacies throughout the Montreal area.
This is great news for everyone because the vaccine can be distributed quicker and reach even the remote areas that don’t have a clinic or hospital nearby.
With the mass distribution of the COVID-19 vaccine, Canadian pharmacies need the support of an established network of partners to ensure the safe and efficient delivery of vaccines.
This is where we come in.
At Storesupport, our team of more than 500 employees can provide adequate support throughout the vaccine roll-out process in several ways:
- We can provide temporary staffing to help manage the influx of people coming in to receive their COVID-19 vaccine.
- We can ensure proper inventory management so that all pharmacy locations are equipped with enough COVID-19 vaccines and that inventory never reaches critically low levels.
- Our team works to provide pharmacies with important insights to understand market sentiment. This helps pharmacies adequately prepare to meet the needs of customers.
- We conduct retail audits and quality assurance assessments to ensure that pharmacies are providing vaccines to customers in the most efficient way possible.
The mass roll-out of the COVID-19 vaccination program in pharmacies across Canada requires a lot of planning and resources to ensure all Canadians who want a vaccine will be able to receive one.
