Pennsylvania Physicians Urge State Legislators to Support Immunization Expansion Bill
Date:5/16/2013

HARRISBURG, Pa., May 16, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The Pennsylvania Pharmacists Association announced today that numerous physicians throughout the Commonwealth are urging state legislators to support House Bill 776, which would expand pharmacist provided immunizations to patients over the age of seven.  In letters sent to the House Professional Licensure Committee earlier this month, the physicians requested that members support the measure and vote it out of committee in the very near future.

The physician letters accompanied letters from the seven Pennsylvania Schools of Pharmacy, who also expressed support for HB 776.

"Pennsylvania currently ranks 16th in the nation in terms of vaccinating our children against preventable illnesses and diseases – there is definitely room for improvement there," said Robert Frankil , President of the Pennsylvania Pharmacists Association. "We are very pleased to be working with Pennsylvania physicians to support legislation that would enable us to make progress in this area and help keep our state healthy.  We encourage legislators to support this important piece of legislation."

Pennsylvania last took a step to help ensure greater availability of critical vaccines in 2002 by amending the "Pharmacy Act" to allow pharmacists to deliver immunizations to individuals over the age of 18. Meanwhile, 39 other states have passed immunization expansion legislation allowing pharmacists with immunization credentials to provide such immunizations to individuals younger than 18 years of age.

By passing HB 776, the Commonwealth has an opportunity to put itself on par with these other states and build on previous efforts to prevent disease by expanding pharmacists' ability to administer these vaccines to children over the age of 7.
