Do you still want to administer drugs by injection?

All pharmacists who wish to renew their Advanced Method Certificate (AMC) must have completed the CPDPP Mandatory Update on Immunizations that became available in the fall on 2017. Without completing this updated education, your AMC will not be renewed and there will be a restriction on your licence indicating you are not authorized to provide any injections. During your renewal, you will be asked to provide the date you completed the update.
