A Guide to Implementing Vaccine Services in Community Pharmacy SUPPORTED BY Pfizer
Pharmacists, who have been providing influenza and pneumonia vaccines in their communities since 1996, are uniquely positioned to have a significant impact on increasing vaccine coverage rates in the U.S. According to the 2020 NCPA Digest, more than 30 percent of all annual flu shots are now administered in pharmacies. However, vaccine coverage rates in the U.S. show many patients remain unprotected and at risk for contracting vaccine-preventable diseases and associated complications. This guide was developed to assist pharmacists and their staff with increasing vaccination rates through expansion of services and understanding how to make it a profitable business.
USE THIS GUIDE TO:
1. Outline a business plan for expanding vaccine services, and
2. Describe vaccine billing and revenue cycle management.*
*While there are variabilities amongst different payers that are too numerous to describe, this guide was designed to help you find the information you need.
