Access to Birth Control Without Prescription in New Jersey
Governor Murphy signed legislation that will allow individuals access to various forms of over-the-counter birth control. Starting in May, the new law will permit pharmacists in New Jersey to distribute self-administered oral, transdermal, and vaginal contraceptives without a prescription.
Individuals will also be required to complete an annual questionnaire to evaluate patient risk factors determined by the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The responses will be kept as a medical record.
