Using data to shape vaccination strategies – Launch of FIP’s global intelligence report on the role of pharmacists in vaccination

30 April 2024


Vaccination is one of the most effective public health interventions to mitigate the burden of disease and saves millions of lives per year. The role of pharmacists as widely documented during the pandemic further reemphasizes the importance of pharmacy-based vaccination in health promotion. The strategic use of vaccination surveillance data can inform and shape public health policies and vaccination approaches. This event will explore the use of surveillance data using international examples of pharmacy-based vaccination services and advocate for extended pharmaceutical services in vaccination. The event will additionally present other global vaccination data-driven projects and their use in policy making.
