Is Measles Back‪?‬ CEimpact Podcast

    • Courses

With pockets of measles outbreaks throughout the country, we discuss the reasons and strategize ways pharmacy can impact vaccination rates in their communities.
 
The GameChanger
Measles was essentially eliminated from the US in 2000. Now, we are seeing a resurgence of outbreaks that have prompted the CDC to issue warnings and reminders of the importance of proper vaccination.
