Pharmacy-Based Immunization Delivery is an innovative and interactive training program that teaches pharmacists the skills necessary to become a primary source for vaccine information and administration. The program teaches the basics of immunology and focuses on practice implementation and legal/regulatory issues. This ACPE activity does not provide a certification in this topic but rather advanced professional training in the form of a certificate.

There are three components to the certificate training program:

  • 12 hour (1.2 CEU) self-study modules with case studies and assessment exam 
  • 8.0 hour (0.80 CEU) live seminar with final exam 
  • Hands-on assessment of intramuscular and subcutaneous injection technique 
Note: Hands-on injection techniqe must be done in person with an approved assessor.

Self-Study Modules Description* and Learning Objectives

The self-study learning activity is designed to ensure that all participants have an understanding of vaccine-preventable diseases and the role of pharmacists as vaccine advocates and administrators.  There are five learning modules that present in-depth information on immunology, practice implementation, and legal and regulatory issues as noted below, with appropriate references to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) resource publication, Epidemiology and Prevention of Vaccine-Preventable Disease.  The self-study program includes a self-assessment test and real-life case studies that are designed to help reinforce and evaluate participants' understanding of key information and concepts.

Module 1. Pharmacists, Vaccines, and Public Health
Module 2. Overview of Immunology and Vaccine Development
Module 3. Vaccine-Preventable Diseases
Module 4. Patient Care Considerations for Immunizing Pharmacists
Module 5. Operating a Pharmacy-Based Immunization Program

 

Live Training Seminar Description and Learning Objectives

The second part of the certificate training program is an active learning seminar focusing on pharmacy practice implementation.  The live training seminar is based on the experience of practitioners involved in immunization advocacy and administration.  The training seminar reinforces and expands on the self-study program and addresses areas such as immunization needs, legal and regulatory issues, and injection-technique training. Participants will be expected to practice giving intramuscular and subcutaneous injections on each other.

After completing the live seminar, participants will be able to:

  • Describe strategies for increasing immunization rates, including physician collaborations, community level activities, and immunization coalition activities.
  • Review adult patient cases and make patient-specific recommendations based on the appropriate immunization schedule.
  • Review a pediatric patient case and make patient-specific recommendations based on the appropriate immunization schedule.
  • Demonstrate effective strategies for communicating with patients who have concerns about vaccines.
  • Describe current evidence that explores the relationship between autism and vaccines.
More information on the Immunization Certificate can be found on APhA's website here.
