Summary "This latest edition of the Immunization Handbook for Pharmacists provides practical and timely updates for pharmacists and pharmacy personnel who are involved in pharmacy-based immunization services. Updated throughout, it provides a step-by-step process for developing and implementing immunization services. As immunization policies and laws change, pharmacists have increased opportunities to positively impact immunization rates and educate their communities about the importance of vaccines.
