As a health care provider, the clinical pharmacists have played a role in promoting, maintaining, and improving immunization
rates among children because the pharmacist is one of the most accessible healthcare professionals. The deficiencies
in education and training on vaccines? efficacy and safety may contribute to low immunization rates and high immunization
errors in the Malaysia. The aim of this study is to identify the impact of immunization workshop on pharmacist? knowledge
regarding Adverse Events Following Immunization (AEFI). The immunization workshop was introduced among Malaysian
clinical pharmacists. Validated knowledge questionnaires (10 questions) about immunization and Adverse Events Following
Immunization (AEFI) were distributed before and after immunization workshop among clinical pharmacist in Pahang-Malaysia.
The immunization workshop consist of: immunization and vaccine types in children and adult, schedule and timing, adverse
reactions, contraindications, pharmacist?s role, immunization errors types, pharmacovigilance, and recommendations. A total of
90 pharmacists were analyzed. The majority of pharmacists were female (63, 70%). The mean ? standard deviation of pharmacists?
knowledge scores before immunization workshop was 4.66?1.9, while the knowledge scores after immunization workshop was
increased to be 7.86?1.62. Although the initiation of the new workshop requires additional resources and take time to develop
and update the curriculum, we strongly advice Malaysian schools of pharmacy to mandate immunization education course and
training as part of their core curriculum.
