Program Description and Goals

Pharmacy-Based Immunization Delivery is an innovative and interactive practice-based educational program that provides pharmacists with the skills necessary to become primary sources for
vaccine advocacy, education, and administration. The program reviews the basics of immunology, identifies legal and regulatory issues pharmacists must consider before starting an immunization program, and focuses on practice implementation.
The purpose of this educational program is to:

  • Provide comprehensive immunization education and training.
  • Provide pharmacists with the knowledge, skills, and resources necessary to establish and promote a successful immunization service.
  • Teach pharmacists to identify at-risk patient populations needing immunizations.
  • Teach pharmacists to administer immunizations in compliance with legal and regulatory standards.

Pharmacy-Based Immunization Delivery is conducted in two parts: the self-study and the live training. To earn a Certificate of Achievement, participants must complete all components of the program including the self-study, the self-study assessment, the PHARMACY-BASED IMMUNIZATION DELIVERY live training seminar, the final examination, and the injection technique assessment.
