Senators on Thursday voted 47-3 to approve Senate Bill 46, sending it to the House for more debate. The measure permanently authorizes emergency medical technicians and cardiac technicians to give vaccines during public health emergencies. Gov. Brian Kemp in January allowed the practice using his current emergency powers.
