Immunization CE Programming Series

This page includes continuing education webinar programming developed by PPA through grant support from the Philadelphia Department of Public Health.  The program is designed to help increase adult immunizations.   Pharmacists and pharmacies can have a significant impact on public health by serving as important catalysts in encouraging patients to comply with the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) recommendations for vaccines. 

 

There are three modules on pharmacist provided immunizations, provided below.  The modules may be taken individually or in any combination and all offer continuing education credit.  Please see below for the specifics for each module.  Questions on any of the content may be directed to:  ppa@papharmacists.com


If you are not currently an immunizing pharmacist and would like to become one or if you own or work at a pharmacy that would like to offer immunizations in the future, please know we are working on a toolkit to help you with this which will be released this fall.  Additionally, we do have some other immunization programming available on-demand for members only - click here for more information.


The Philadelphia Department of Public Health has some additional resources including an adult immunization toolkit available at:  http://kids.phila.gov/index.php/programs/adult-immunization-project/

        

CE Requirements: To receive the indicated CE credit for each module, you will need to watch the entire video, complete an online survey evaluation, and pass a short quiz. Access to the survey and quiz will be automatically provided after you have watched the video. PPA must have your CPE Monitor ID and birthday on file to issue credit.

 

Each of these modules are offered completely free of charge for CE credit for both members and non-members.
