Description

Commissioner of Health; administration and dispensing of necessary drugs, devices, and vaccines during public health emergency; emergency. Allows the Commissioner of Health to authorize persons who are not authorized by law to administer or dispense drugs or devices to do so in accordance with protocols established by the Commissioner when the Board of Health has made an emergency order for the purpose of suppressing nuisances dangerous to the public health and communicable, contagious, and infectious diseases and other dangers to the public life and health for the limited purpose of administering vaccines as an approved countermeasure for such communicable, contagious, and infectious diseases. Current law limits the Commissioner's ability to make such authorizations to circumstances when the Governor has declared a disaster or a state of emergency or the federal Secretary of Health and Human Services has issued a declaration of an actual or potential bioterrorism incident or other actual or potential public health emergency. The bill contains an emergency clause. This bill is identical to HB 939. Read the Bill »
