Activity Description

Pharmacists have rapidly expanded their roles as immunizers for the general public in multiple practice settings. However, much has changed over the past several years in the landscape of vaccine-preventable disease making it a challenge to keep up with the latest information. Many pharmacists can administer pneumococcal vaccines through statewide standing orders. This activity will provide a foundation on the impact of pneumonia, including risk factors and underlying conditions to consider when determining if a pneumococcal vaccine would be beneficial to individual patients. Faculty will focus on available vaccine products and their utility. Since the most common vaccine-related medication errors that occur in the community pharmacy setting involve the pneumococcal vaccines, special attention to product selection and administration will be provided.

Learning Objectives

The target audience for this activity includes pharmacists. At the completion of this activity, the participant will be able to:

  • Describe the clinical impact of pneumonia and risk factors for susceptibility.
  • Identify patient populations at risk for the development of pneumonia and expert consensus recommendations for prophylactic vaccination.
  • Compare and contrast pneumococcal vaccine products by dosing schedule.
  • Examine best practices for pneumococcal vaccine administration.
