The Role of Dental Providers in Vaccine Delivery and Policy Recommendations
This NNOHA publication describes COVID-19 vaccine delivery strategies developed by health centers in states across the country who are utilizing dental providers for vaccine administration. It also highlights policy opportunities to consider for the future that support medical/dental integration and whole-person care in health centers.
NNOHA Vaccine Administration in Dental Clinics Job Instruction Sheet
NNOHA has worked with health center dental leaders who are engaged in delivering COVID-19 vaccines to develop this Job Instruction resource for dental providers.
This tool is intended as a resource to help train dental providers on the new processes of vaccination administration. It is important to note that because each community is different, there is not a one-size-fits-all method for vaccine administration. NNOHA recommends that you adapt this resource based on your specific training needs.
March 12, 2021: a new federal declaration was announced, permitting licensed dentists and dental students to vaccinate the public against COVID-19 regardless of state laws that prevented them from doing so.
The CDC is currently offering several free, self-paced modules to provide dental teams with the necessary training they need to administer the COVID-19 vaccines.
