Vaccines & special-risk groups: Diabetes

A webinar organised by:
14 November 2022

Vaccination is one of the most effective measures to prevent disease transmission and protect populations from a variety of diseases that heavily impact individuals and health systems. Overall, through the provision of person-centred pharmaceutical services, pharmacists play a key role ensuring healthy lives and promoting wellbeing, as well as promoting more effective, rational, and widespread use of vaccines. Among the different special-risk population groups for vaccine-preventable diseases, people living with diabetes have particular vaccination needs that will be highlighted at this event.

By the end of the session participants should be able to:
- Understand the most important vaccines for people living with diabetes
- Recognise the role of pharmacists in promoting vaccination to people living with diabetes
- Discuss strategies for pharmacists to support people living with diabetes with their vaccination needs.
