Class Description

This free online one CE-credit course for pharmacists and pharmacy techs is available on the American Society of Health-System Pharmacists (ASHP) website.


Since the U.S. Food and Drug Administration announced Emergency Use Authorizations for two vaccine candidates against SARS-CoV-2, rollout has begun in health systems and clinics for Phase 1 allocation and administration. As states and communities diligently work to coordinate this mass immunization effort, vaccine hesitancy and misinformation compromises public acceptance of and confidence in the vaccines, even among some healthcare workers. Join us for this webinar to hear from Dr. Rupali J. Limaye, associate scientist in the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, and Sarah K. Bledsoe, assistant director of pharmacy, Children’s Mercy Hospital who will share strategies to manage and address vaccine hesitancy as you continue to manage and administer COVID-19 vaccines within your institution and community with safety top of mind. CE will be available. Learning Objectives:
  • Summarize the current state of vaccine candidates and health-system implementation.
  • Discuss the role that pharmacists play in vaccine delivery, administration, patient education, and follow up.
  • Describe strategies to manage and address vaccine hesitancy.
  • Identify ASHP resources related to COVID-19 vaccine.
