Because that pharmacist didn't take a certification class to give shots. As a business point of view...its cheaper to have the tech spend time and give the shots.

Just an FYI - avg pharmacist salary is 120K....no pharmD is pulling over 250K without working 2 jobs

My wife is a tech at Target, and her boss clears $180,000 a year before bonuses. And this is small town PA... LA, NYC and other major cities would pull 3 times that easy.

Technically, they are not allowed to administer shots/medication. My wife is fully trained to do so, and has to give everyone their flu shots, and the pharmacist, which spent 6 years in school, and did a residency cannot...

It is more about untying the hands of a trained person according to the law.
