B.C. pharmacist who faked his COVID-19 vaccinations suspended for 30 days
A B.C. pharmacist has been disciplined for claiming to be vaccinated against COVID-19 and falsifying provincial health records to hide his unvaccinated status.
The College of Pharmacists of BC says on a post on its website that its inquiry committee has suspended Aftabahmed Shaikh for 30 days and placed a permanent letter of reprimand on his file.
In the post dated March 10, the college says Shaikh was practising in “various locations” in B.C. and admits to twice entering COVID-19 vaccinations into his PharmaNet record without receiving the shots.
The college says its inquiry also found that Shaikh altered the pharmacy’s software to make his records more difficult to find.
The college says Shaikh’s actions were “highly unethical and amounted to professional misconduct.”
