In an effort to fight the opioid criss, Governor Lamont announced that the state has received $1.3 million in funding for providers to integrate their electronic health records or pharmacy management systems with a Prescription Monitoring Program (PMP)Gateway. This move will allow pharmacies to streamline their records and meet state requirements for preventing prescription drug abuse.

In anticipation for the COVID-19 vaccine rollout, Governor Ned Lamont signed Executive Order No. 9Q (the "Order") to enable pharmacies across the state to administer approved doses. These vaccines must be pursuant to an order by a licensed healthcare provider and must meet other state requirements. However, they give community pharmacies a greater role in vaccine administration and COVID-19 prevention.
