New vaccine bill would allow for more access

A Sturgeon Bay pharmacist says a new vaccination bill proposed in Wisconsin would be very beneficial to families. The new legislation would allow pharmacists to give shots to children younger than 6 with a doctor’s prescription. That is currently not allowed in Wisconsin. Jake Blazkovec, a pharmacist at Bay Hometown Pharmacy in Sturgeon Bay, says allowing pharmacists to vaccinate all ages would help more kids get the shots they need. This is even more important with the measles outbreak reaching 20 states. Blazkovec is confused why pharmacists aren't allowed to vaccinate young kids already.

 

 

According to the Wisconsin Department of Health Services, two-thirds of the state’s counties are medically underserved when it comes to vaccines.
