Gov. Tony Evers signed into law three health-related bills Tuesday. The measures will:
- Allow pharmacists with appropriate training to administer vaccines to young children.
- Make technical changes so that EMS providers can apply for a Medicare pilot program.
- Create a grant program to update 911 service infrastructure. Grants could go to staff training, equipment updates and consolidation of public safety answering points.
Evers said in a statement that the measures will help "promote safer and healthier communities in Wisconsin."
