Cardinal Health Helps Health Care Providers Prepare for 2010-2011 Flu Season

Kuper says that because pharmacists can now be licensed in all 50 states, the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico to administer vaccinations to adults over the age of 18, retail pharmacists can play an important role in ensuring all patients have local, convenient access to flu vaccines.

Last year, retail pharmacists were particularly influential in driving vaccinations, administering more than 16 million vaccines (3) and acting as a source of information for concerned citizens.  Cardinal Health offers an array of support services to help retail pharmacy customers earn certification to offer vaccinations and promote vaccination services to their local community.

Likewise, Kuper says that hospital pharmacists and other healthcare professionals play a critical role in ensuring that hospital employees – who can be frequently exposed to the flu virus – get vaccinated as early as possible. This step is particularly helpful in limiting flu exposure to more vulnerable patients who are already hospitalized for other illnesses.

Kuper also noted that many health care professionals leverage their role as trusted health care advisers to promote awareness of the importance of being vaccinated by:

  • Assessing all patients' flu vaccination statuses and recommending vaccination to those who have not yet received it;
  • Encouraging patients to get vaccinated as soon as possible, because flu season peaks in February and March. Influenza vaccines can be administered as late as March or April, although earlier vaccination provides maximum protection.
  • Educating parents about the importance of early flu vaccinations for children, especially because some children need to receive two flu shot doses to benefit from full vaccine protection (4)

Cardinal Health distributes pharmaceuticals to more than 40,000 sites every day – including hospitals, retail pharmacies
