CPR and the Immunization Program FAQs: Why do I need to have proof of CPR or BCLS certification before I begin immunizing? The Certificate of Achievement from the American Pharmacists Association’s Pharmacy-Based Immunization Delivery certificate training program states that immunizers should maintain and have accessible proof of current certification in Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) or Basic Cardiac Life Support (BCLS).  This aligns with existing immunization guidelines, policies and procedures for immunization practices throughout the healthcare system.

What type of CPR is acceptable? Every immunizing pharmacist should take and maintain a CPR or BCLS certification.  The specifics surrounding which type of certification you need depends on your employer and/or your state requirements. Some require only training at the basic level while others require training at the Basic Life Support (BLS) for Healthcare Providers level. Depending on the age of the patients you plan on immunizing, you may need an infant or children CPR class. Some states or employers may accept an online course if it’s for CPR recertification. Before administering immunizations, it is the responsibility of immunizers to check the specific regulations of their state board of pharmacy and that of their employer (if applicable). Information about the most commonly available classes may be found by visiting www.redcross.org or www.americanheart.org.

Do I have to be certified in CPR or BCLS before I participate in APhA’s certificate training program? It is not a requirement of the American Pharmacists Association that a participant obtain CPR or BCLS certification prior to participating in the certificate training program but program participants should first check with the policies and procedures of their employer or school to ensure they are meeting proper requirements.   Check with your state laws and regulations regarding any requirements related to CPR or BCLS certification prior to administering vaccines.
