Dentists in California Approved To Administer COVID-19 Vaccines

In an effort to speed up COVID-19 vaccinations, the governor of California has announced that dentists are now cleared to administer the shot.

The emergency waiver allows the state’s 36,000 dentists to help give the vaccinations.

Dr. Daniel Chen applauds the decision.

“As dentists, I think we are fully qualified to administer these vaccination shots. We already give injections in hard to reach places in the mouth, so giving a shot in the arm shouldn’t be a big deal.”

Would you feel comfortable getting the coronavirus vaccine from your dentist? Should other states jump on board with this plan?
