The Alberta College of Pharmacists has developed and posted the Alberta Influenza Immunization Program Resource Guide for Pharmacists. The guide is designed to accompany and supplement Alberta Health Services (AHS) information and policies.
The resource contains guidance on meeting ACP standards when administering vaccine, along with critical pieces of information on topics like informed consent, adverse events, and reporting. It does not include the official AHS policies.
The guide also includes a sample patient record. A reproducible sample patient record in a more usable format (i.e., full size, no appendix title), is also posted on the website under H1N1 – pharmacist information and Seasonal Influenza Immunization – pharmacist information.
