Activity Preview
Do you need CPE to maintain your immunization provider status? Are you looking for the latest information regarding immunizations? Have you been keeping up with recent changes in the area of immunizations? APhA is proud to say that we have trained over 175,000 people with the Pharmacy-Based Immunization Delivery certificate training program and we applaud your role in the improvement in our nation’s public health.
Unfortunately, as soon as you receive your Certificate of Achievement the information that you learned is already changing.  APhA recognizes this fast paced environment and is happy to provide a win-win solution for you and your patients.
APhA will provide the latest information directly to you from the CDC’s Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices.  Following two of the three ACIP meetings in 2015, our APhA representative, Stephan Foster, will present the latest information via a one-hour CPE webinar.
This webinar will keep you abreast of any new immunization recommendations and changes to the immunization schedules as well as help you to fulfill your state immunization education requirements.
