Administering Drugs and Immunizations for Currently Licensed Maine Pharmacist
The Maine Board of Pharmacy is pleased to announce that a Maine licensed pharmacist may apply for authorization to administer drugs and immunizations. The fee is $20.00.
Once approved, the pharmacist will receive a new license, which will include the text "authorized to administer drugs and immunizations."
The expiration date of the authorization will coincide with the current pharmacist license expiration date.
In the event that a pharmacist files a late renewal (on or after January 1, 2010 and within the 90 day window for late filings, the pharmacist will be subject to the additional $10.00 fee for renewal of the authorization to administer drugs and immunizations in addition to the pharmacist's license renewal fee of $75.00 and a late filing fee of $50.00. A friendly reminder that once your license expires, your privilege to practice in Maine as a pharmacist ends. The 90 day window for a late renewal filing does not grant you the privilege to practice under an expired license.
A person who does not hold a Maine pharmacist license may apply for authorization to administer drugs and immunizations when he or she applies for the Maine pharmacist license by using the application to apply for a Maine pharmacist license by Reciprocity/Endorsement or Score Transfer or Examination. The option to request authorization to administer is contain therein.
