Monkeypox and COVID-19: A Pharmacist’s Guide to Providing Vaccinations

August 16, 2022 (2 min read)

Earlier this month, the federal government deemed monkeypox a national public health emergency, and it continues to make efforts to stretch its vaccine supply to combat the virus. Meanwhile, daily cases of COVID-19 remain above 100,000. In June, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) expanded eligibility for COVID-19 vaccinations to the country’s approximately 20 million children between six months and five years of age. Accordingly, now is the time to get up to speed on pharmacist-provided immunization and vaccination requirements. Rely on this Practical Guidance 50-state survey to identify relevant state laws and understand state requirements regarding pharmacist administration, immunization registries, and administration to minors.
