FLORIDA PHARMACISTS GET OK TO PROVIDE IN-STORE FLU SHOTS

JUNE 01, 2007
<p>Florida pharmacists received a green light from state lawmakers to administer influenza shots to residents of the Sunshine State. Pharmacists in 44 other states already are authorized to provide this service.</p>
<p>Under the bill, pharmacists who want to participate must complete a 20-hour training course to be certified to administer the shots. Additionally, pharmacists will be required to follow guidelines established by a physician, but the physician does not have to be on the premises during the administration of the shots.</p>
<p>The legislation was supported by pharmacy chains in Florida. It was opposed, however, by the state&rsquo;s medical association.</p>
