Kansas Governor Laura Kelly has issued an executive order allowing temporary authorization for additional vaccinators, including dentists, during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Executive Order #21-06 allows dentists as well as other state healthcare professionals including pharmacy students, paramedics, and others who may administer injections or inoculations within their scope of practice to administer coronavirus vaccines approved or authorized by the US Food and Drug Administration.
“We must use every tool in our arsenal to vaccinate Kansans as quickly and efficiently as possible,” Kelly said. “While there is still a vaccine shortage, this order will increase the number of vaccinators in our state so we can achieve our vaccination goals as soon as supply allows.”
