    • Overview

      With over 230,000 pharmacists trained to provide immunizations it is imperative that pharmacists stay up to date with immunization recommendations. Pharmacists also need to be able to identify the vaccination needs of the patients that they serve. Through this presentation we will review the proper administration technique for intramuscular, subcutaneous, and intranasal vaccines. We will also review which vaccines are given via each route of administration. We will also cover the update recommendations for pneumococcal vaccination and will discuss the variety of options for influenza vaccination and preferred vaccine for different patient populations. Finally, we will discuss patient cases and how we identify the immunization needs of these patients.
