In this episode – “Pharmacist Vaccinators and Antimicrobial Stewardship” – is an interview format that focuses on the FIP Development Goal 17: Antimicrobial Stewardship from the perspective of vaccination by a pharmacist. The role of vaccination in antimicrobial stewardship, preserving antimicrobial effectiveness, preventing antimicrobial resistance, and the promise of addressing these issues that pharmacists vaccinators will deliver.

About the Series: The second of three series is composed of 8 episodes that focus on The FIP Development Goals from the perspective of vaccination. The new FIP Development Goals and the agenda of improving vaccination worldwide come together in this series of interviews that outline how pharmacists and pharmaceutical scientists will deliver on the promise of improved vaccination rates worldwide.
