The Ohio Pharmacists Association was instrumental in the passage of SB 248 (amending section 4729.41) which allows pharmacists to administer the following adult immunizations: influenza, pneumonia, tetanus, hepatitis A and hepatitis B. Pharmacists desiring to give immunizations must:
  • complete a course in drug administration approved by the State Board of Pharmacy;

  • receive and maintain certification to perform basic life-support procedures by completing a basic life-support training course by the American Red Cross or the American Heart Association; and

  • practice in accordance with a definitive set of treatment guidelines specified in a protocol established by a physician and approved by the Ohio State Board of Pharmacy.

    Goals. The goals of this program are to train pharmacists to set up an adult immunization program for influenza, pneumococcal, tetanus, and hepatitis A & B; and to train pharmacists to properly administer vaccines and meet the requirements established by the Ohio State Board of Pharmacy for recordkeeping and for the use of physician protocols. Sample forms and protocols will be distributed at the seminar.

    Objectives. At the conclusion of the program, participants will be able to:

    1. describe the immune system including types of antigens, types of immunity and the immune system reaction to immunizations;

    2. list the disease states and types of immunity associated with influenza, pneumococcal, tetanus, and hepatitis A & B immunizations;

    3. identify the appropriate administration schedules, route of administration, injection sites, dosages, precautions and contraindications, proper storage requirements, appropriate patient populations, and appropriate monitoring of the patient for adverse reactions for each of these immunizations;

    4. demonstrate proper sterile technique in preparation and administration of injectable and intranasal dosage forms;

    5. explain the proper disposal procedures for contaminated needles and immunizations, and the proper procedures for accidental needle sticks; and

    6. describe requirements for recordkeeping and protocols as outlined by the Ohio State Board of Pharmacy.
