Pharmacist in his office

A pharmacist is a person who supplies drugs to people, often prescriptions from a doctor but sometimes on their own,

Pharmacists have to be trained and have knowledge about the drugs package. Many work in a pharmacy.Pharmacists interact with customers, give the prescribed medication and telling them about the drugs.

Some work in hospitals where they may deliver the drugs to the different parts of the hospital and give people the drugs they need to take home.

Some work with general practitioners where they may check that people are getting the right drugs. [1]

In the COVID-19 pandemic in the United Kingdom many pharmacists were vaccinating people. They have also been doing Influenza vaccines for several years. There are plans for them to do more of this work.[2]
