Ensuring pharmacists in all 50 states have the same vaccine administration authority as other health providers would help lay the groundwork for a better, stronger, and more equitable healthcare system for all.

Once the COVID-19 federal emergency authorization comes to an end, pharmacists’, pharmacy interns’, and pharmacy technicians’ authority will once again be restricted in dozens of states across the country.
