ACT NOW: Ask Your Legislators to Support Pharmacist Immunization Expansion!
Legislation is currently circulating in the Wisconsin State Legislature that would expand pharmacists' ability to immunize.
The bill would allow:
- Pharmacists and pharmacy students to administer any immunization on the CDC immunization schedule to patients ages 6 and older WITHOUT a physician delegation protocol.
- Pharmacists and pharmacy students to immunize patients under the age of 6 with a valid prescription order after completing a training course (under current law, pharmacists cannot immunize patients under 6 under any circumstance).
It is urgent that your legislators hear from you the importance of this legislation for increasing access to immunizations in Wisconsin!
