Apotex marked its 10,000th APO-Wellness clinic over the long weekend by vaccinating cricket legend Steve Waugh
Apotex held a special flu vaccination event featuring Blooms The Chemist ambassador and Australian cricket legend, Steve Waugh, AO, who visited his local Blooms The Chemist in Cronulla, Sydney.
Mr Waugh met fans and received a flu shot as Blooms celebrated Apotex’s milestone.
“Apotex’s strategic business partner, Blooms The Chemist, is honouring the mutual and enduring partnership that has helped them become a primary healthcare destination of choice for local communities,” Mr Waugh said.
“Apotex and Blooms The Chemist’s joint philosophy of looking after the community and building relationships with people who enter the pharmacy, has enabled them to connect with local residents by offering easily accessible primary health services such as flu vaccination.”
Apotex has been pioneering innovative, in-pharmacy professional services solutions since 2007 and over the past decade its nurse practitioners have vaccinated patients against flu in-pharmacy, nationwide. This includes children as young as five years of age.
Apotex brand manager, Hayley Tamborini, said, “We are proud to have reached this milestone and are delighted to be celebrating this important occasion with Steve and Blooms The Chemist, a long-standing Apotex supporter, today.
“This is an example of how best-in-class pharmacy services can enhance customer engagement and loyalty.
“The landscape of community pharmacy is in continuous flux and we will continue to innovate and further evolve our professional services offering to support our pharmacy partners,” said Hayley.
In addition to introducing new professional services programs to their suite, Apotex has also recently launched a Health Awareness Clinics Scorecard that, powered by data and insights from Sinapse, provides pharmacies with a clear and practical guide to assessing the full financial benefit of the contribution of each clinic service to the pharmacy’s bottom line.
