What’s new and am I Up To Date?: Immunization Information That’s Easy to Understand
Pharmacy Fusion offers an inside look, in an easy to understand format, at the new guidelines and availability of COVID-19, monkeypox. Meningitis and influenza immunizations.
This month’s Pharmacy Fusion features Dr. Kevin Cleveland and student pharmacist Allie Bradley. In addition to teaching about immunizations to health professional students, Dr. Cleveland works with the Idaho Immunization Coalition on several initiatives to improve vaccination rates in rural and underserved populations in Idaho. He is also the advisor to the Operation Immunization student community outreach program that provides vaccination services throughout Idaho. Allie is this year’s Operation Immunization chairperson.
Besides COVID-19, other Immunizations are becoming more widely available, including most recently the Monkeypox vaccination. Dean Fitzgerald leads Dr. Cleveland through a series of questions concerning all types of vaccines, their intended use and the age recommendations for each, while Allie explains the student organization’s efforts to provide immunizations across the state of Idaho.
