Pharmacists Urge the Public to Begin Getting Immunized
Date:9/4/2009

Patients Encouraged to Visit their Local Pharmacy to get Vaccinated

Washington, DC (Vocus) - The American Pharmacists Association (APhA) is recommending that the public begin visiting their local pharmacist or other health care provider to get vaccinated against influenza. Currently almost 80,000 pharmacists have been trained to administer immunizations and have the authority to administer vaccines in all 50 states, excluding the District of Columbia. Consumers are encouraged to check with their pharmacist in advance to ensure immunizations are offered and to find out scheduled hours.

"The best way to reduce one's chances of getting the flu is to be proactive and get a yearly influenza vaccination," said APhA CEO and Executive Vice President Thomas Menighan. "With pharmacists being the most accessible health care providers, they are in a unique position to help protect their communities against the spread of the flu."

Annually 5 to 20 percent of the US population is infected by influenza, resulting in nearly 36,000 deaths and over 200,000 hospitalizations, according to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC). Consistent with the CDC and the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) recommendations, APhA recommends the following people should get vaccinated each year:

 
  • All persons, including school-aged children, who want to reduce their risk of becoming ill with influenza or spreading it to others
  • Children
