DIGEST OF HB 1464 (Updated April 16, 2013 5:25 pm - DI 84)

Immunizations by pharmacists and pharmacy students. Adds immunizations for pneumonia, tetanus, diphtheria, acellular pertussis (Tdap), human papillomavirus (HPV) infection, and meningitis to the immunizations that a pharmacist is allowed to administer to an individual or a group of individuals under a drug order, under a prescription, or according to a protocol approved by a physician if certain requirements are met. Provides that if a physician uses a protocol, the protocol may apply only to an individual or group of individuals who are: (1) at least 65 years old for the pneumonia immunization; or (2) at least 11 years old for the other allowable immunizations. (Current law provides that an individual given an immunization by a pharmacist under a protocol must be at least 14 years of age.) Specifies consent requirements. Requires the physician who writes the protocol to actively practice with a medical office in Indiana. Requires certain information to be available when an immunization is administered under a protocol. Requires a pharmacist or pharmacist's designee to provide immunization data to the immunization data registry unless the patient or the patient's parent or guardian completes an immunization data exemption form. Allows a pharmacist intern or a pharmacist student to administer an immunization to an individual under a drug order or prescription or to administer an immunization to a group of individuals under a drug order or prescription or according to a protocol, subject to rules adopted by the Indiana board of pharmacy. Provides that the rules: (1) must provide for the direct supervision by a pharmacist, a physician, a physician assistant, or an advanced practice nurse; and (2) may not be less stringent than the requirements applying to a pharmacist who administers an immunization to an individual. Establishes the interim study committee on adult and children immunization issues.
