Weigh in with NACDS RxIMPACT on Missouri Immunization Bill

By: | May-8-14

<p>On Tuesday, the NACDS RxIMPACT grassroots program sent to advocates an &ldquo;Action Alert,&rdquo; asking them to urge Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon (D) to sign a pivotal bill that would expand pharmacists&rsquo; immunization authority.<br />
<br />
The bill, SB 808, would allow pharmacists to administer immunizations against Hepatitis A and B, tetanus, diphtheria, and pertussis by written protocol authorized by a physician for persons age 12 and older. If you are a pharmacist or have operations in Missouri, it is critical you tell Gov. Nixon to sign the bill into law!<br />
<br />
NACDS member companies operating in Missouri are encouraged to <a href="http://www.capwiz.com/nacds/issues/alert/?alertid=63206876&amp;type=SW">take action</a> today.<br />
