This program was developed by the American Pharmacists Association and is delivered in partnership with the Texas Pharmacy Association. This offering is supported by an educational grant from Merck.


Pharmacy-Based Immunization Delivery certificate training program (14th Edition) is a 20-hour innovative, intensive, and practice-based continuing pharmacy education, based on national educational standards for immunization training from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. This program is designed to educate pharmacists about the professional opportunities for vaccine advocacy and administration. This practice-based curriculum represents a fusion of science and clinical pharmacy. The program, which emphasizes a health care team approach, seeks to foster the implementation of interventions that will promote disease prevention and public health.

Pharmacy-Based Immunization Delivery certificate training program has three components: online interactive self-study with assessment; the live seminar with online final assessment; and hands-on assessment of intramuscular and subcutaneous injection technique. A Certificate of Achievement will be awarded to participants who successfully complete all program components, including an evaluation.

In addition to enrollment in the immunization certificate training program, your $199 registration fee will also provide you with an automatic free enrollment in APhA’s Test Your Knowledge: Immunization Delivery. This free 2-hour online CPE program will be loaded onto your profile six months later and will provide you with a review of the information you experience in the certificate training program. It will also provide any up-to-date immunization information six months following the certificate training program. You are not obligated to participate in this CPE program, but it is provided to you free as part of your enrollment in the immunization certificate program. It is supported by a grant from Merck. Visit for a list of learning objectives, faculty credentials and ACPE information.
