Vermont Licensed Pharmacies

All licensed Vermont pharmacies must report all dispensed II-IV controlled substances on Vermont patients at least every seven days.

If your pharmacy does not stock or dispense controlled substances, fill out the VPMS exemption form and your pharmacy will be exempt from having to submit controlled substance reports to the VPMS.

If your pharmacy dispenses controlled substances infrequently to Vermont residents, the pharmacy is required to submit “zero reports” at least every seven days to the VPMS.
