Increasing Vaccination Rates with an Appointment-Based Pharmacy Model

Organization:
University of Cincinnati

The overall goal of this project is to increase vaccination rates by systematically assessing vaccination status, administering necessary vaccinations at the pharmacy through an appointment-based pharmacy model, and accessing and reporting vaccination history in a statewide vaccination database. Specifically, the objectives of the research are to increase vaccination rates for influenza, pneumococcal, shingles, hepatitis, and tetanus vaccinations for older adults, determine the acceptance rate of vaccinations offered at the pharmacy, increase patient satisfaction with receiving vaccinations at the pharmacy, and assess the feasibility of pharmacy access to a state immunization registry.
