Philadelphia Department of Public Health and Immunizations

The Philadelphia Department of Public Health (PDPH) offers a standing protocol for immunizations including flu, shingles, pneumococcal and HepA.  In order to be covered under this protocol, pharmacies need to complete the three basic modules that PPA offers for CE credit and submit appropriate documentation (immunization protocol and MOU, PhilaVax Confidentiality form).  PDPH will perform license checks.
