Specifically, the recent amendment includes coverage of licensed pharmacists, pharmacy technicians, and pharmacy interns when administering COVID-19 monoclonal antibody therapeutics orally, through intramuscular injection, or through subcutaneous injection.

North Carolina DHHS Ivermectin Notice – final

NCDHHS requests communications assistance around Invermectin:

Due to a recent spike in prescriptions for ivermectin (an antiparasitic drug), related poison control calls and emergency room visits, NCDHHS is informing all providers that ivermectin is neither approved nor authorized by the FDA to treat or prevent COVID-19. The National Institutes of Health (NIH) has determined there is insufficient data to recommend for or against ivermectin for treatment of COVID-19. Exercise caution when prescribing this drug outside of authorized treatment avenues.

We need your help. Please educate your patients about the risks of using ivermectin without a prescription and the potential risks of use for the prevention or treatment of COVID-19. Talking points for providers are included in this communication. Further information is available in the CDC Health Advisory on Ivermectin Use to Prevent or Treat COVID-19.
