Feedback for Proposed Changes to the Pharmacy Act (Administration of Vaccines by Pharmacists)

Pharmacist  ·  April 1, 2016

This is a step forward for our profession. However, it's somewhat confusing that pharmacists are not authorized to prescribe the selected vaccines as they belong to Schedule II Rx. Does this requirement only apply when patients have drug plans. I wonder if it would be legal for the pharmacist to administer appropriate vaccines to cash-paying patients who request the vaccination?
