House Bill 2220 is expected to be signed into law by Gov. Kate Brown. It would allow dentists to provide vaccinations.
According to the bill HB2220 would require dentists to utilize existing reporting mechanisms, protocols, and storage requirements already established by the Oregon Health Authority for providers currently vaccinating Oregonians.
Dentists would also take vaccine-specific training, approved by the Board of Dentistry, prior to administering any vaccines.
