The Department of Health and local health departments (LHD's) in various counties are seeking qualified pharmacist volunteers to administer vaccines, and specifically COVID-19 vaccines, at anticipated vaccination sites.  
Question:  Pharmacists who are interested in volunteering have asked how they can meet the Board's vaccine reporting and recordkeeping requirements when volunteering in this capacity.

Answer: Pharmacists who volunteer for an LHD to administer vaccines at an LHD-designated site are acting on behalf of the LHD, and thus may rely on the LHD to report vaccines administered by the pharmacist volunteer to ImmuNet and the CDC, and to maintain the requisite administration records in compliance with HIPAA and Maryland medical records laws.

For more information regarding how to become a pharmacist volunteer, please contact the Maryland Responds Medical Reserve Corps at mdresponds.health@maryland.gov​
