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.
