The Executive Orders, when originally issued, allowed non-traditional vaccine administrators including dentists, dental hygienists, and veterinarians to administer a COVID-19 vaccine to the public. With the lifting of these orders, dentists, dental hygienists, and veterinarians are no longer permitted to administer vaccine at this time in the state of Ohio.
Dentists, dental hygienists, and veterinarians scheduled to participate in upcoming COVID-19 vaccination clinics, and enrolled provider sites that utilize these professionals to administer COVID-19 vaccine, must make alternative arrangements to have others administer vaccine.
Other professions currently administering COVID-19 vaccine, should contact their professional licensing board immediately with any questions regarding this issue and to confirm their scope of practice.
If you have any questions or issues, please call the Ohio Department of Heath (ODH) Provider Call Center between 8 a.m. and 7 p.m. Monday through Friday by calling 1.844.9ODHVAX (1.844.963.4829) or sending an email to COVIDVACCINE@odh.ohio.gov.
