On Wednesday (2/16) at 9:00 AM the House Public Health Committe will hear HB 3509. This bill was a shell bill (meaning it had no language) authored by Representative Provenzano. Representative Provenzano has now added language to the bill which authorizes pharmacists to administer Covid-19 vaccines to adults and children. This is already Oklahoma law under the Prep Act. it is also Oklahoma law that parental consent is needed prior to the administration of a vaccine, however we would like to see that clarified in the language of the bills. Therefore, we are watching this bill and hope you will as well. No action is needed on this bill at this time.
