I left out one new law in my post a couple of weeks ago on the New Laws Related to Our Mission. SB 1298 allows a licensed pharmacist to give a flu vaccine to kids between 6 and 18 years old without a prescription. The new law also lets pharmacists administer other vaccines in a public health emergency. This new law should increase access to immunizations by allowing trained pharmacists to administer immunizations and vaccinations to children and their parents all at one time.
