Pharmacists Play a Vital Role in Providing Immunizations in Their Communities,
Date:4/2/2010

ontent and quality. APhA ramped up its efforts to train additional pharmacists to provide immunizations to address the public health risk posed by the 2009 H1N1 influenza virus. To date, over 100,000 pharmacists have been trained to administer immunizations. Ninety-three percent of those trained went through programs administered by APhA and its
130 licensed partners in over 2,000 immunization training programs.

CDC’s survey highlights the need for continued outreach and education to healthcare personnel. APhA supports efforts to increase immunization rates of healthcare professionals, for the purposes of protecting patients, and urges all pharmacy personnel to receive all immunizations recommended by the
CDC for healthcare workers. “Through outreach to student pharmacists, pharmacists and other pharmacy personnel, APhA has delivered the message that we must set a good example for our patients,” said to APhA Chief of Staff Mitch Rothholz.

As recently reported by the CDC, there has been a rise in the number of H1N1 cases in the Southeastern United States. There is currently regional flu activity in Georgia, Alabama and South Carolina, as well as local activity being reported in six other Southeastern states. H1N1 vaccinations are still available at pharmacies throughout the U.S. and individuals who have not been vaccinated against H1N1 are still encouraged to do so.
