Unlocking Vaccine Confidence: A Pharmacy Perspective (Episode 1)
FIP is organizing a series of three webinars centred on critical aspects of vaccination. These webinars aim to provide insights into three key topics to advance pharmacy-based vaccination services:
The first event is dedicated to addressing vaccine confidence and aims to explore the factors that influence public trust in vaccines and discuss strategies to bolster vaccine acceptance.
The second event focuses on preparing for vaccination campaigns during the winter season. This includes discussions on adapting vaccination strategies for seasonal challenges and ensuring the availability of vaccines during this crucial period.
The third event focuses on at-risk or vulnerable groups and examines the importance of reaching and safeguarding these populations and explores ways in which pharmacies can play a crucial role in their vaccination.
One of the key objectives of this webinar series is to harness the insights gained from the panel discussions to inform the development of global guidelines for pharmacy practices related to vaccination. These guidelines will serve as a valuable resource for the international pharmacy community, contributing to more effective and inclusive vaccination efforts worldwide.
