Pharmacist immunization policies boost flu vaccine uptake
from Pharmacy Times
How do changes and policy at the state level affect influenza virus vaccine uptake? This is the focus of a study conducted by Avalere Health and the National Association of Chain Drug Stores and published in the journal Clinical Therapeutics. In the 2014-2015 influenza season, only 38 percent of adults between the ages of 18 and 64 received the flu vaccine. In that same season, 66.7 percent of adults aged 65 years and older were immunized. However, the immunization goals for the nation are 80 percent for adults younger than 64 years old and 90 percent adults older than 65 years old.
