UNC Eshelman School of Pharmacy, Chapel Hill, NC
Recognizing the need for education and increased opportunities to receive immunizations, the American Pharmacists Association Academy of Student Pharmacists (APhA-ASP) and the Student National Pharmaceutical Association (SNPhA) collaboratively developed Operation Immunization. This was the first service project of this magnitude in the history of APhA or SNPhA. This program is an immunization education campaign designed to increase the public’s knowledge of immunizations while raising the number of adults receiving immunizations. Participants include all of the APhA-ASP chapters with the help of trained practitioners and other healthcare professionals trained and certified to give immunizations.
How We Work Together
The UNC Operation Immunization Chapter has teamed up with Vaccine Ambassadors to spread awareness on the importance of vaccines both domestically and globally. Activities by the group will include advocacy and awareness initiatives, in addition to raising funds for the purchase of vaccines through Vaccine Ambassadors. The UNC Chapter will work with their national leadership and academic faculty to set a model, which can be implemented within the 92 national Operation Immunization chapters.
