  7. Portuguese Community Pharmacies: Contribution...

By Dr. Ana Neves (EAP Vice-President) and Dr. Stefano del Torso (EAP Executive Director)

In Portugal vaccination confidence and vaccination rates are very high due to a long-standing political investment and a global social involvement. Medical doctors, nurses and pharmacists work together not to miss an opportunity to catch up with vaccination.

Pharmacies have been involved in flu vaccination for 11 years: 78 % of private pharmacies have agreed to collaborate to this activity and it is estimated that pharmacies have provided about 1/3 of the influenza vaccination coverage.

A brief presentation of this experience can be found HERE.
