In an attempt to get as many Americans vaccinated as possible, the United States government has expanded COVID-19 vaccine powers to include pharmacy technicians. Once a vaccine for the coronavirus is approved, pharmacy technicians will join their pharmacist colleagues in the effort to quickly immunize all Americans.
Coupled with punishments for those who refuse this vaccine, the U.S. government is pushing hard for everyone to take this shot. The head of Operation Warp Speed has already said that the ultimate goal of the vaccine is to inject it into every American by 2021.
Drugstore chains including CVS Health, Walgreens Boots Alliance, Rite Aid, and Walmart have been pushing the U.S. government and Trump White House to waive state scope of practice rules and allow pharmacy technicians the ability to vaccinate. And a plan developed by the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention includes many of these major drugstore chains as future Covid-19 vaccination sites.
The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services last month issued guidance that “authorizes both qualified pharmacy technicians and state-authorized pharmacy interns acting under the supervision of a qualified pharmacist to administer FDA-authorized or FDA-licensed COVID-19 vaccines to persons ages three or older.” –Forbes
“Pharmacists and their staff are critical to the COVID-19 response,” Assistant Secretary for Health Dr. Brett Giroir said when the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services announced the ability of pharmacy techs and interns to administer Covid-19 vaccines. “Together with pediatricians and family physicians, they are ensuring that Americans receive the vaccines they need where they need it.”
There will be a huge effort to get as many people to willingly take this vaccine once they say it’s ready. Mandatory or not, there will be a propaganda push and an attempt to turn those who refuse the vaccine into “public health threats.” If you refuse this vaccine, your life will be made hellish. Just prepare for it and understand what you are up against if you decide to deny this vaccine that will be rolled out by the military.
