CARP convened an expert panel to tackle the complex and important issue of adult immunizations on the first day of our Annual General Meeting and Chapter Congress in late October. Hosted by our Executive Vice President Susan Eng, the panel discussed the reasons behind low rates of adult immunizations, and explored ways of opening up access to vaccines.
Among the panelists were Dr. Allison McGeer, who, along with the late Dr. Donald Low, was Canada’s calm presence in the face of SARS. Ruth Ackerman, the Director of Professional Practice Development at Shoppers Drug Mart and Jim Armour, the Individual Director of Advocacy on the Canadian Pharmaceutical Association’s Board of Directors spoke about the role that pharmacists can play in administering and promoting adult immunization.
