Annual Continuing Education Updates for Pharmacists
State Regulations in Connecticut require pharmacists who have completed a practice-based immunization training to obtain continuing education on immunizations annually to maintain their certification. These activities are designed to fulfill the requirement and update pharmacists on current information. The credits can also be applied to your required 15 credits of annual CE.
See the Immunization Section on our YAFI CE page
These are some valuable articles and tools for use in your Immunization practice.
