Governor signs bill authorizing pharmacists to administer additional vaccines approved by CDC


Governor Kathy Hochul on Tuesday, Nov. 2, signed a bill that would expand the type of vaccinations that licensed pharmacists can administer to patients who are 18 years or older. 

The bill (S.4807/A.6476A), which takes effect in 90 days, will allow pharmacists to administer vaccines recommended by the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC) for hepatitis A & B, human papillomavirus, measles, mumps, rubella and varicella.
