RxAlly And Shenandoah University Partner On Grant-Funded Pharmacy Initiative To Increase Pneumonia Immunization Rates
Date:2/26/2013

LEESBURG, Va., Feb. 26, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- RxAlly, a first-of-its-kind alliance of more than 22,000 pharmacies nationwide, announced today a partnership with Shenandoah University's Bernard J. Dunn School of Pharmacy to collaborate on a Pfizer-awarded grant to the university. The grant will enable pharmacy faculty members to assist community pharmacists with the implementation of a pneumococcal-focused immunization program.

The program - Improving Patient Immunization Rates through Optimizing Pharmacy's Role in Providing Immunization Services - will work toward an overall goal of promoting and increasing pneumococcal vaccinations among adults over age 65 and high-risk patients aged 2-64 with comorbid conditions. Kerr Drug, a North Carolina-based regional community pharmacy chain and RxAlly member, will participate in the initiative along with an experienced team of pharmacy educators, American Pharmacists Association (APhA) immunization trainers, an accredited medical education company, and an outcomes analytics company, RealCME.

Four key objectives will drive the direction of the study: increase pneumococcal immunization rates among high risk populations, improve the ability of pharmacists and pharmacy staff to identify candidates for receiving the pneumococcal vaccine, assist pharmacists and pharmacy staff in encouraging awareness of the importance of pneumococcal vaccine administration through direct patient interaction and work with pharmacists and pharmacy staff to increase opportunities to provide immunization-related clinical services.

According to the 2010 data from the National Health Interview Survey (NHIS), pneumococcal vaccination coverage for adults >/= 65 years and high-risk adults age 19-64 in the United States was 59.7% and 18.5% respectively. Wi
