Did you know that pharmacists can now order and administer immunizations to children ages 3-18?  Make sure you are fully prepared and up-to-speed on the latest recommended childhood vaccines and techniques to immunize every member of the family.

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) recently took action under the Public Readiness and Emergency Preparedness (PREP) Act to authorize pharmacists to order and administer vaccines to individuals age three through 18 years in order to increase access to lifesaving childhood vaccines and decrease the risk of vaccine-preventable disease outbreaks as children across the United States return to daycare, preschool and school.  The Texas State Board of Pharmacy has provided guidance that Texas pharmacists can in fact without a prescription and physician protocol order and administer vaccines in Texas to this age group as a result of this federal action, which is subject to several requirements.  This refresher program on childhood immunizations will address recommended vaccines and techniques specific to this patient population.

Learning Objectives:
At the completion of this activity, pharmacists and technicians will be able to:

  1. Review childhood vaccine-preventable diseases and the vaccines used to prevent them.
  2. Discuss childhood vaccine administration and comforting techniques.
  3. Identify requirements for pharmacists to order and administer childhood vaccines under the PREP Act.
  4. Apply best practices to immunize safely during a pandemic.

Note: Registrants will receive an email prior to the event with the link to the virtual course through Zoom. Please make sure you have the most updated version of the Zoom app.
