Hochul signs bill expanding vaccines pharmacists are allowed to give
ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WHEC) — Gov. Kathy Hochul Tuesday signed a bill expanding the list of immunizations that pharmacists can provide to adults.
Licensed pharmacists will now be able to provide people 18 and older with shots for Hepatitis A and B, HPV, measles, mumps, rubella and varicella.
The flu and COVID-19 vaccines are on the list they’re currently allowed to give.
According to the governor, studies show that pharmacist-provided immunizations increase overall immunization rates.
