How has COVID-19 affected your position in the pharmacy?
COVID-19 has caused the pharmacy to be much busier than usual. I have just additionally started helping administer COVID vaccines.
What is the most rewarding part of your position?
Since many patients have been out of jobs during the pandemic, the most rewarding part of my job is when I can help them save money on their prescriptions. I try to help in any way possible.
What has this experience taught you about being a pharmacist?
This experience has taught me to be an advocate for my patients. Now, I am not afraid to call the doctors for more affordable alternatives or suggestions that may fit the patient’s needs. I am here to make sure my patients are able to get what they need.
