Appeared in Choice on 2010-10-01:
All 50 states now allow pharmacists to administer vaccines, so the need exists for a comprehensive guide on immunizing the public. This guide provides all the material necessary for pharmacists to set up, conduct, and monitor immunizations in their pharmacies. Immunization workflow charts, marketing strategies, and vaccine handling and storage practices are well described. In addition, information on training pharmacy technicians in the immunization program is provided. The small, spiral-bound text has chapters on the management of adverse events and the required record keeping and documentation. The guide ends with a complete vaccine product listing and suggested schedule for administration. This volume is a requisite for pharmacists involved in immunizations. Summing Up: Essential. Graduate students and professionals/practitioners. R. G. McGee Jr. formerly, Walters State Community College
