Brief statement of Reason for Finding Imminent Peril :

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.
