Round Table Vaccination



Vaccinations to prevent infections have become a major measure to preserve health of people. Many stakeholders are involved, including pharmaceutical scientists, vaccine developers, regulators, but also public health authorities and health care professionals. On this background, there is a worldwide discussion about possible contributions of pharmacists including the option of pharmacy-based vaccinations. Pharmacists are involved in the development of vaccines, but also in their production, quality assurance, storage, partitioning and distribution. Moreover, pharmacy-based vaccination is accompanied by new challenges, such as legal, regulatory and practical implementation, training of the pharmacy staff and safety issues.

Based on these developments, EUFEPS would like to initiate an online round table with experts, national representatives and thought leaders. The online meeting is scheduled for December 15, 2021 at 3 pm to 5 pm CET. Below you could find the program for the Round Table. Three speakers will present the background and the challenges of pharmacy-based vaccination in short talks to provide a basis for the discussion. The meeting is also intended to provide the basis for a position paper on pharmacy-based vaccination at the European level.
