Abstract

The pharmacy profession has largely been quiescent with respect to vaccinations since time immemorial despite the critical role pharmacists play in other facets of healthcare. It is a well-established fact that pharmacists are more accessible to patients and health seekers in the community. Therefore, utilizing these versatile professionals in vaccination campaigns is likely to pay dividends both to the patients and government departments concerned with preventive health. Several countries have found it imperative to engage pharmacists in adult vaccination programs to achieve sufficient outreach and uptake among underserved populations.
