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).

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.


Please read through all the protocols carefully. If you decide to change any part of them, your changes must be submitted in writing to Amanda Timmons and approved by the OHA Immunization Program.

If you have any questions about these revised protocols, please call Amanda Timmons at (971) 673-0312.

Please read the Disclaimer.
