Pharmacist Professional Advisory Committee


The Pharmacy Expanding Vaccine Access (PEVA) workgroup is an initiative to decrease the prevalence of vaccine preventable diseases. The primary focus of PEVA is to increase access to and demand for immunization services. This program uses subject matter experts to advise, educate and implement improved immunization practices to the public health service field. Our focus area is PHARMACY-BASED immunization practices and we hope to reach pharmacists, pharmacy technicians, health professionals, community members, and the public through our activities.

PEVA Program Goals

  1. Strengthen the adult immunization infrastructure
  2. Improve access to adult vaccines
  3. Increase community demand for adult immunizations
  4. Foster innovation in adult vaccine development and vaccination-related technologies.
