Purpose and Reason

Addition of new Section 21.10. See Brief Statement of Reason for Finding Imminent Peril for additional details.

The Department’s contingency plans for pandemic flu response have been recently modified to utilize practitioners at community-based health centers for dispensing antivirals and other pharmaceuticals to the public, a practice not specifically authorized under the current regulations. Immediate filing will protect the health, safety and welfare of the public by ensuring that a sufficient number of geographically separate locations are available to ensure prompt and efficient dispensing of antivirals and other pharmaceuticals (on a state-wide basis) as part of the Department’s response to pandemic flu or a similar emergency situation.
