The role of pharmacists in the delivery of influenza vaccinations.
Vaccine. 2004 Feb 25; 22(8):1001-6.V

Abstract

OBJECTIVES

The purpose of this study is to determine whether influenza vaccine rates have increased in states where pharmacists can give vaccines.

METHODS

Secondary analysis of the Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System (BRFSS) from the years 1995 and 1999. Information regarding legislation allowing pharmacists to administer vaccines was obtained from the American Pharmaceutical Association.

RESULTS

Individuals aged 65 years and older who lived in states where pharmacists could provide vaccines had significantly higher (P < 0.01) influenza vaccine rates than individuals of this age who resided in states where pharmacists could not provide vaccines.

CONCLUSIONS

Allowing pharmacists to provide vaccinations is associated with higher influenza vaccination rates for individuals aged 65 years and older.
