  1. You said pharmacists, but I think you meant paramedics. DOes the bill mention consent or if the person is incompacitated. My issues would be whether they are doing this without consent. I can see where paramedics being able to administer for ex. a rabies shot to someone bitten by a rabid animal would be a good thing, so the consent piece is the crux of the issue for me.
