USC health experts urge expanded vaccinations

USC faculty members Bill Mason, head of the division of infectious diseases in Keck Pediatrics and at Childrens Hospital Los Angeles, and Jeff Goad, associate professor of clinical pharmacy at the USC School of Pharmacy, testified in Sacramento on March 3 at an Assembly Health Committee hearing on preventing disease through immunizations. The hearing was held in the state capitol. Mason spoke on “Ensuring Vaccine Safety.”

Goad discussed complementary delivery sites such as pharmacies, which have been growing in recent years as medical clinics have been unable to keep pace with the demand for current and new vaccines.

“The pharmacy will likely become a traditional site… as the public comes to expect and demand this service,” Goad said, noting that patients often get vaccinated there on a walk-in basis nearly seven days a week.
