Pharmacists who wish to provide immunizations must take a Board approved immunization training program. The program must be at least 20 hours and include a review of immunization laws and Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) training.

Those requirements include the following:

A three hour Continuing Education (CE) program must be completed each biennial renewal period ending September 30 and must be offered by a Florida statewide professional association of physicians.

The statewide association must be accredited to provide American Medical Association Physician’s Recognition Award (AMA PRA), Category I Continuing Medical Education (CME).
