Pharmacy Interns and Technicians Can Now Administer COVID-19 Vaccine Once Released

Dear Pharmacists,

On October 21st, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) released a statement regarding the release of the COVID-19 vaccine. In the guidance statement, pharmacists, pharmacy interns, and now pharmacy technicians are now authorized and can be qualified to administer childhood vaccines, COVID-19 vaccines, and COVID-19 tests. Interns must be authorized by the State/Board of Pharmacy in the state their internship is but does not need a license/registration. Because of this, CVS plans to hire 10,000 more licensed pharmacy technicians to help administer COVID-19 vaccines when it’s released.
