In August 2020, in reaction to the declining numbers of routine vaccinations in 2020 due to actual and patient perceived barriers to well child visits during the COVID-19 pandemic, the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) published a declaration of amendment to the PREP Act that expanded the role that pharmacists can play in the provision of adolescent immunizations. Although the AMA and AAP is opposed to this expansion of pharmacist scope based on a perceived negative impact on participation in well-child visits, this declaration highlights disparities such as rural access to healthcare as well as the critical need for new avenues of access, and represents an outstanding opportunity for pharmacists, who may be unaware of the potential to expand their immunization practice.
This activity will strengthen pharmacists’ knowledge of adolescent vaccine disparities, provide pharmacists with vaccine education based on the ACIP vaccination schedule for pre-teens and teens, and equip pharmacists with best practices in counseling and advocacy for well child visits during these years of life.
