APhA's Pharmacy-Based Immunization Delivery certificate training program is an innovative and intensive continuing pharmacy education activity based on national educational standards for immunization training from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. This program is designed to educate pharmacists about the professional opportunities for vaccine advocacy and administration. This practice-based curriculum represents a fusion of science and clinical pharmacy. The program, which emphasizes a health care team approach, seeks to foster the implementation of interventions that will promote disease prevention and public health.

This program consists of three components: 12 hours (1.2 CEU) of self-study modules with case studies and an assessment exam, as well as 8.0 hours (0.8 CEU) live seminar with final exam and a hands-on assessment of intramuscular and subcutaneous injection technique. Successful completion is defined as a score of 70% or better on both the self-study and live seminar assessments.

The purpose of this 20 credit hour certificate training program is to prepare pharmacists with comprehensive knowledge, skills and resources necessary to provide immunization services to patients across the life span.

The American Pharmacists Association (APhA) is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education as a provider of continuing pharmacy education.
