Pharmacists to be allowed to give Covid-19 vaccine

Great news: HHS is preemptively authorizing pharmacists and pharmacy interns across the country to administer any approved Covid-19 vaccine to patients 3 and older. (This follows the agency’s August 19 announcement that it was authorizing pharmacists to provide all CDC-approved vaccines.)

As with the August announcement, this rule applies across the country, and supersedes state laws that may limit pharmacist delivery of vaccines either by vaccine or by age.
