Did you know there is a way to be tested for the flu and strep and be given the medicine for treatment at the same time? Currently, 17 states allow pharmacists to test and treat for the flu and strep and provide treatment under a supervising physician. But Florida is not one of those 17 state.
So how can we make Florida a place where you can get these same services at your local pharmacy? We need your help. Send a letter to our state leaders urging them to support Senate Bill 714/House Bill 389 to allow local pharmacists to provide the testing for and treatment of influenza and streptococcus.
