HHS Temporarily Authorizes Pharmacy Technicians and State-Authorized Pharmacy Interns to Administer Childhood and COVID-19 Vaccines and Tests
HHS issued federal guidance authorizing and granting liability coverage to both “qualified” pharmacy technicians and state-authorized pharmacy interns to administer ACIP-recommended vaccines (ages 3–18) and FDA-authorized or licensed COVID-19 vaccines and tests (ages 3 and older), including serology tests, during the Public Health Emergency. In order to benefit from this new authority, a number of requirements must be met, including pharmacist supervision, ordering, training, recordkeeping, and reporting.
