ACP has updated our Seasonal influenza information webpage, which provides pharmacy teams with links and tools they need to navigate through the 2020-21 influenza immunization season.
Included on the webpage is a link to the Alberta Immunization Policy (AIP), which includes a new version of the Fluzone® high-dose influenza vaccine: information for health professionals document, which was updated to include the addition of Fluzone® HD vaccine for individuals 65 years of age or older who reside in provincially funded long-term care beds. The AIP Immunization Goals and Objectives were also updated to reflect the influenza immunization targets for this season.
The Alberta Influenza Immunization Program will begin in October. For more information on the program, policies, and regulations, please check our Seasonal Influenza Information webpage regularly.
