INTRODUCTION Older adults experience low zoster and pneumonia vaccination rates, especially among minorities. Engaging patients in education about vaccines and vaccine-preventable diseases may be an important factor in increasing vaccine uptake. Vaccine Education through Pharmacists and Senior Centers (VEPSC) is a vaccine education trial of older adults being completed in senior community centers. OBJECTIVE Aim of VEPSC is to test effectiveness of didactic pharmacist-delivered education (PHARM) versus interactive peer-led small group education (PEER) in improving knowledge and beliefs about vaccination for zoster, influenza, and pneumonia. Purpose of this analysis is to present baseline knowledge results.
