(a) A pharmacist or a pharmacy student or intern who is working under the direct supervision and control of a pharmacist may administer influenza vaccine to a person six years of age or older and may administer vaccine, other than influenza vaccine, to a person 12 years of age or older pursuant to a vaccination protocol if the pharmacist, pharmacy student or intern has successfully completed a course of study and training, approved by the accreditation council for pharmacy or the board, in vaccination storage, protocols, injection technique, emergency procedures and recordkeeping and has taken a course in cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and has a current CPR certificate when administering vaccine.

If the vaccinee does not have a primary care provider, then the administering pharmacist or pharmacist supervising an administering pharmacy student or intern shall promptly report a record of the immunization to the person licensed to practice medicine and surgery by the state board of healing arts who has entered into the vaccination protocol with the pharmacist. The immunization will also be reported to appropriate county or state immunization registries, except that if the person vaccinated or, if the person is a minor, the parent or guardian of the minor, objects to the report, the report shall not be made.
