Senate, Assembly pass Queens lawmaker’s bill allowing pharmacies to administer all vaccines approved by CDC

A bill sponsored by Queens state Senator Toby Ann Stavisky and Assemblywoman Alicia Hyndman to help protect some of the state’s most medically underserved communities passed in the state Legislature last week.

The bill will significantly increase the number of vaccinations licensed pharmacists are allowed to administer, by reversing decades long restrictions that made access to other inoculations extremely difficult for many rural communities and communities of color.
