The COVID-19 pandemic has changed the landscape of healthcare. Patients who suffered from a COVID-19 diagnosis will likely require additional care as they suffer from long-term complications. Pharmacists are an important member of the healthcare team for these patients. Additionally, pharmacists play a vital role in vaccine education and administration. Emerging data on the sequelae of COVID-19 will be important for frontline pharmacists in supporting their patients' recovery.
