The American Pharmacists Association (APhA) has designed this activity to help you provide up-to-date immunization care. The resources and materials for this program are based on resources and materials from the current edition of APhA's certificate training program, "Pharmacy-Based Immunization Delivery". "Test Your Knowledge: Immunization Delivery" consists of resource materials, learning reinforcement exercises and an assessment. All activities are related to various topics in immunization care. You will be given two opportunities to pass the assessment with a passing score of 70% or better. If you do not pass on your first attempt, we encourage you to use the resource materials to identify your gaps in knowledge prior to your second attempt.
At the completion of this activity, the participant will be able to:
- Explain the recent expansion of the role of pharmacists as vaccine providers and describe the status of pharmacists' authorization to administer vaccines throughout the United States.
- Describe the characteristics of various vaccine types and the rationale for the timing of these vaccines.
- Describe the clinical features and potential complications of diseases and the vaccines used to prevent them.
- Identify vaccines on an immunization schedule from the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices with their appropriate timing, doses, and routes of administration.
- Describe important considerations when deciding which vaccines to offer.
- Describe the benefits of vaccines and the common concerns about vaccines.
