Board of Pharmacy Reinstates Emergency Rule to Help With Vaccines

At the end of June, Montana Governor Greg Gianforte rescinded the authority of pharmacists to help oversee and administer COVID-19 vaccines - and other vaccinations. The original order was passed earlier in the pandemic to help with the demand for COVID-19 vaccinations. Now, the Montana State Board of Pharmacy has reinstated this emergency order and given pharmacists and pharmacy technicians this authority again. This was due to a surge in demand for COVID-19 vaccines as many other medical offices have stopped offering them, leading to increased pressure on pharmacies to deliver this service.
