Operation Immunization

Did you know that pharmacists in 43 states including Maryland have the authority to administer immunizations to patients?  Did you know that the public sees pharmacists as their most accessible healthcare professional?  These two facts make Operation Immunization a valuable learning experience for both student pharmacists and the community we serve.

Operation Immunization is a nationwide immunization awareness campaign that is a collaborative effort of the American Pharmacists Association Academy of Student Pharmacists (APhA-ASP) and the Student National Pharmaceutical Association (SNPhA). The goal is to protect the public health by raising awareness about vaccine preventable viral illnesses and immunizations, and subsequently to increase the number of immunized people.
