New Pharmacy Regulations in Effect


There are new pharmacy regulations in effect that allow pharmacists to prescribe medication for Hepatitis A, Hepatitis B and Hepatitis A and B (including the TWINRIX vaccine), shingles (Herpes Zoster), Human Papillomavirus (HPV) and chickenpox (Varicella Zoster).

Residents can visit their local pharmacy for any of these vaccines without requiring a prescription from a physician.

People should contact their pharmacist in advance, as some locations may charge a fee to provide this service, in addition to the cost of the vaccination.

The new amendments to the regulations do not affect the publicly-funded immunization program for school aged-children, where vaccinations for Human Papillomavirus (HPV) and chickenpox (Varicella Zoster) are provided free of charge.
