    • Overview

      The influenza vaccine is one that is recommended for everyone over 6 months of age unless they have a contraindication to receiving the vaccine. Every year there are many people who remain unvaccinated despite the recommendation to receive the vaccine. This presentation will discuss the vaccination rates from the 2017-2018 influenza season as well as the new recommendations for the 2018-2019 influenza season. Due to many people choosing not to receive the influenza vaccine for a variety of reason we will also discuss some of the myths associated with the vaccine and techniques to dispel these myths. We will also discuss ways to increase the number of vaccinations that you give in your pharmacy. Finally, since many people may only come into your pharmacy to receive the influenza vaccine we will discuss ways to assess whether or not these patients need any additional vaccinations at that time.
