MT Board of Pharmacy reinstates emergency rule to help on vaccines

HELENA — The state Board of Pharmacy has issued an emergency order to help pharmacists oversee and administer more vaccines for Covid-19 or other diseases – after that power had been revoked by Gov. Greg Gianforte.

The board issued the order last week, reinstating Montana pharmacists’ emergency authority to oversee other health-care professionals, such as nurses, and supervise additional pharmacy technicians, both for administering vaccines.
