Oregon Pharmacy Protocols for Immunization
Note to pharmacists:
The following Pharmacy Protocols for Immunization are reviewed yearly. Generally, updates are made as new recommendations are published by the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP).
2018 Expiration Extension
With the approval of the Immunization Program Medical Director, we are extending the expiration date of all standing orders / pharmacy protocols until August 31, 2018. This will allow for a thorough review of all updated information. We will be posting the updated orders / protocols as they are approved, but will wait to post the updated table of contents until all of the new orders /protocols are posted.
We are hoping to post the first batch of updated orders / protocols in the next week. We will indicate the updated orders by adding a “new” tag and by the updated expiration date of July 31, 2019.
An interim protocol is published when clinical guidance is needed but the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices recommendations haven’t yet been published in the MMWR. The interim protocol will be replaced with a final protocol once the recommendations are published.
