Can pharmacists in all states administer zoster vaccine?

According to the American Pharmacist Association, all states allow pharmacists to administer zoster vaccine. Not all pharmacists provide vaccination services, and of those who do, not all administer zoster vaccine. It is best to call the pharmacy ahead of time to find out if they have Shingrix to administer to your patients. The vaccine must be administered in the pharmacy. Do NOT instruct the patient to transport the vaccine from the pharmacy back to your office. This could damage the potency of the vaccine.
