After a successful COVID-19 booster and influenza vaccination campaign, this session will recap on what were the challenges, what worked well and what we learned. The session will provide practical tips to strengthen vaccination operations in the pharmacy after reflecting upon last year’s campaign, including proactively identifying high-risk patients and most current evidence-based vaccine technology.
After attending this session, pharmacists will be better able to:
- Explain the complications of influenza infection amongst high-risk individuals.
- Recall operational changes from recent influenza seasons to help prepare for the upcoming influenza season.
- Describe influenza vaccine technologies and the benefits they provide.
- Summarize recommendations available to date for the 2023/2024 influenza season.
