Exhaustion, lack of vaccine doses: pharmacists in the Eastern Pyrenees refuse to open on Sundays

“It’s simply impossible,” answers Françoise Rouve when she talks about opening her pharmacy on Sundays. This pharmacist from Estagel (Eastern Pyrenees), and president of the pharmacists union, speaks of an unrealistic proposal.

Between fatigue and discomfort

To increase the number of vaccinated in France, Olivier Veran made vaccination possible in pharmacies on Thursday even on Sunday. A decision to allow booster dose candidates access to a rapid vaccination before the end of the year holidays. A decision far from reality on the ground for Françoise Rouve.

“There are two reasons: lack of doses and fatigue. We do not have enough supplies to vaccinate during the week and on Sunday. I have placed an order for 15 vials from Pfizer and I was just told that finally, I will only receive three for the week of Christmas. Then there is the fatigue of the teams. We have been on the move for two years. We have resigned in our teams, we cannot ask our employees to also come on Sundays! “Laments the president of the Pyrenees-Orientales pharmacists union.

A situation that Caroline Garrabé, Espira-de-l’Agly pharmacist confirms point by point. “We, we would like to open, but we are already there six days a week and we have a family life. Then, between the flu, tonsillitis, stomach aches and vaccination, we need to rest.”

For the president of the Pyrenees-Orientales pharmacists union, only one in 10 pharmacies should play the game on Sunday in France and therefore in the department.
