This session will address adult immunization recommendations, coverage rates, and immunization standards. In addition, this session will help pharmacists identify evidence-based strategies to implement into clinical practice and provide training in use of the Citywide Immunization Registry (CIR) and its features to improve adult immunization administration and reporting. This session will NOT provide certification as an immunizer. It is intended for those already certified to immunize. More details will be posted as they become available.
