Florida consumers will now have more convenient access to new vaccines at their local pharmacy starting July 1, thanks to a new law passed by the Florida Legislature. House Bill 279, signed into law by Gov. Rick Scott on June 10, now allows patients to receive several new vaccines at pharmacies, instead of having to go to their doctors' offices.

The new vaccines include Hepatitis A, Hepatitis B, TDAP (tetanus, diphtheria and pertussis, also known as whooping cough), varicella, MMR (measles, mumps and rubella), meningococcal and pneumococcal. Vaccines for influenza and shingles were already available at all local pharmacies.
