Description

Vaccines are an important aspect of public health, and this activity will seek to broaden the conversation about preventative health and how immunizations fit into pharmacy practice. Faculty will discuss outbreaks, how vaccines interact with them, and changes in recommendations. The renewed interest in adjuvants that are in vaccines and the recent updates in ACIP will also be explored.

This is a featured CE activity on the Society of Infectious Diseases Pharmacists Education Center (SIDPEC) website. SIDPEC is the educational hub of the Society of Infectious Diseases Pharmacists (SIDP). The SIDPEC portal provides educational activities on infectious disease pharmacotherapy for clinical pharmacists, health‐systems pharmacists, community pharmacists, and other allied‐health disciplines.

  • Discuss recent outbreaks of vaccine preventable disease,  how resistance and  vaccines have impacted one another, and implications for vaccine advocacy.
