Pharmacists’ Confidence in the COVID-19 Vaccines Continues to Grow

WASHINGTON, D.C. – A nationwide survey of pharmacists has found that increasing percentages of pharmacists have been administered a COVID-19 vaccine, are more comfortable addressing vaccine hesitancy with patients, and are continuing to build necessary support staff at their practice location to safely offer a COVID-19 vaccine.

More than 9 in 10 pharmacists (92%) said they plan to or have been vaccinated against COVID-19, in a survey conducted recently by the American Pharmacists Association (APhA). Of these, 80% said they had received one dose, 9% had received two doses, and 3% planned to get a vaccine as soon as they can. This is the fourth survey APhA has conducted since September about pharmacists’ confidence in the COVID-19 vaccines. In its January 2021 survey, 51% reported they had received at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine.
