Pharmacists will soon be able to offer more immunizations to customers under a new law that takes effect starting July 1st

Currently, pharmacists can offer flu vaccines under guidelines approved by a physician. Now they’ll be able to add vaccinations for pneumonia, tetanus, diphtheria, acellular pertussis, HPV infections, and meningitis. 

Pharmacists will have to undergo special training first. Lawmakers say that the new rules aim to make health care more accessible. 

More than 40 states currently allow pharmacists to provide immunizations, although requirements for education and oversight vary.
