Current Bill Summary

SCS/SB 369 -This act changes provisions regarding pharmacy. It allows pharmacists to administer pneumonia, shingles, and meningitis vaccines under certain circumstances and provides that permits are not required for pharmacists to perform nondispensing activities outside of pharmacies.

Pharmacy technicians may assist a pharmacist after they have applied for registration, until the board refuses to issue a certificate of registration. Pharmacy technicians' registration will lapse and become null and void thirty days after the expiration date.

The $10 filing fee for out-of-state drug distributors is changed to a fee in an amount established by the board.

This act is similar to HB 513 (2009) and CCS/HCS/SB 296 (2009).
