Each year, over 60,000 Americans die of vaccine-preventable diseases. For every child who dies from a vaccine-preventable disease, 400 adults will die from vaccine-preventable diseases. To help address this issue, APhA-ASP has collaborated with the Student National Pharmaceutical Association (SNPhA) and the American Association Academy of Pharmacy Practice and Management (APhA-APPM) to develop Operation Immunization: Pharmacy Students and Practitioners Protecting the Public Health. This committee strives to educate the public about the importance of vaccination as well as to promote implementation of immunization services in pharmacies by participating in flu clinics during the fall semester. The committee plans to immunize the Pacific athletic department, Pacific health science students, Pacific law students on the Sacramento McGeorge satellite campus, and Pacific undergraduates.
