ICHP Position Statement - Immunizations for Pharmacists and Pharmacy Technicians

The Illinois Council of Health-System Pharmacists recommends all pharmacy personnel and pharmacy students receive annual vaccinations against influenza.  Also, if the health professional has no previous history of vaccination or is without serologic evidence of immunity, they should receive other appropriately scheduled vaccinations against hepatitis B, mumps, measles, rubella, varicella, tetanus, diphtheria, and pertussis.  ICHP also recommends that pharmacy personnel and pharmacy students stay up to date on vaccination schedule per the current CDC guidelines.
