Texas Pharmacy Association CEO Debbie Garza presented with Denise Starkey of the Department of State Health Services (DSHS) at the 2019 Texas Immunization Conference on Your Ally In Protection: How Pharmacies Can Improve Adult Access to Immunizations. Garza spoke to how pharmacists play a vital role in increasing accessibility to vaccination services, emphasizing pharmacists' training and expertise in vaccinations, their accessibility, and how they can administer more than just flu shots to improve adult health care in Texas.

"Pharmacists are playing an increasingly important role in the provision of health care services, moving beyond the traditional dispensing role," Garza said. Through the continued development and strengthening of partnerships between the TPA and DSHS along with pharmacy partners, the focus on increasing the awareness and importance of adult immunizations among the general public, pharmacists, and other health care providers remains a priority.
