Title: Calling the Shots: Incorporating Vaccines for Children and Travel into Your Practice



This presentation will focus on the growing opportunities for pharmacists, and soon student pharmacists, to provide immunizations in PA. We will focus on establishing protocols for vaccinations, travel and routine. We will also discuss the upcoming regulations surrounding the expanded role of student pharmacists as immunizers and and how such regulatory changes change practice in Pennsylvania.
