COVID-19 Vaccine Regulations for Dentists Map

States and territories are continuing to refine their COVID-19 vaccination plans following the Food and Drug Administration’s Dec. 11 authorization of the first COVID-19 vaccine. These efforts may include using dentists to assist with vaccination efforts in some states. As final authority rests with each state in prioritizing the population to receive the vaccine and in administering it, there are some variances between states. This interactive map provides:

  1. The phase of the state vaccination plan in which dentists will receive the COVID-19 vaccination where determined (refer to the vaccination plan linked under each state for a description of the phase and/or priority level as they vary between states).

  2. Dentists’ ability to administer the COVID-19 vaccination by state.

Note: This information is provided by the state dental societies and updated as it is received. Please note that this issue is evolving rapidly. In most states, official notice of authorization has been issued, but in a few states a governing body may not yet have published an official notice though the authorization is in effect. Should you require more information or official documentation of a specific state’s order or regulation, you are strongly advised to contact the dental association or board of dentistry in that state. It is also available in a comprehensive document for download.
