2022 Incentive Grant Recipient: Adrianna Herrman, PharmD
Project Proposal: Assessing the Impact of a Pharmacy Provided Personalized Vaccination Recommendation on Immunization Rates of Adolescents
Adrianna Herrman, PharmD currently serves as the PGY1 Community Pharmacy Resident for the University of Kansas and Balls Food Stores, at Price Chopper Pharmacy in Overland Park, Kansas. She is a graduate of University of Missouri-Kansas City School of Pharmacy.
"I am honored to receive this Incentive Grant. I am looking forward to the opportunity to promote preventive care and identify the impact a community pharmacy team can have on improving adolescents’ immunization rates."
The motivation behind this proposal came from Adrianna's passion for preventive care services including immunizations. In her experience, community pharmacists now more than ever before have an opportunity to overcome vaccine hesitancy and close immunization gaps for the adolescent population.
"I am incredibly thankful for receiving this incentive grant. I am looking forward to the opportunity to identify how a community pharmacist’s personalized vaccination recommendation can close the gaps in an adolescent’s immunization schedule in addition to exploring how caregivers overcame COVID-19 vaccine hesitancy so those tactics can be promoted in the future.
