The Dean's Letter

Dean’s Message | Spring 2021

For the past several months, collaborative, experiential learning has taken place at a unique location, our parking lot. Since January, Operation Immunization, in partnership with San Joaquin County Public Health Services, has organized drive-through COVID-19 vaccination clinics for the Pacific community and San Joaquin County residents. Our doctor of pharmacy (PharmD) students have led the effort to organize and host the clinics. It has been a privilege to see the students in action and watch as they develop their leadership and patient care skills.

The clinics have also been an opportunity to collaborate with students, faculty and alumni from the Arthur A. Dugoni School of Dentistry and the School of Health Sciences. It takes a village to end the pandemic and we have been supported by individuals from across the Pacific community. Learn more.

All 600 of our PharmD students hold intern licenses, as well as a nationally recognized certification that allows them to immunize the public, the same certification held by licensed pharmacists. Currently we have students in the Stockton area and scattered throughout California. Wherever they are, our students are equipped to contribute to the vaccination effort to keep our communities safe and healthy.

Our alumni have also served a critical role during the pandemic. As medication experts on health care teams, they have been a valuable resource, advising physicians on the safe and effective use of new and experimental therapies. Pacific alumni have also played a leading role in organizing and staffing COVID-19 vaccination clinics in their communities.

Community pharmacies are poised to serve a crucial role in the coming months. When COVID-19 vaccine supply exceeds demand, helping patients overcome vaccine hesitancy will be an urgent public health issue. Pharmacists working in the community are positioned to use the relationship they have with their patients to quell fears and correct misconceptions.

If you have not already done so, I encourage you to get your COVID-19 vaccine as soon as you are able for your health and for the health of others.
