Legislative Announcement for Dentists to Help with Vaccination Efforts!

ISDS is excited to inform you that you will now be able to take a (1) hour course in order to participate in mass vaccination efforts throughout the state.

ISDS is excited to inform you that you will now be able to take a (1) hour course in order to participate in mass vaccination efforts throughout the state. Through the significant efforts of ISDS, the Governor has issued a new proclamation detailing how dentists can participate as a volunteer.

There are two options in this new proclamation. You can either obtain a (1) hour training if you want to volunteer at a mass vaccination site or a (4) hour training requirement if you want to administer in your own office. 

ISDS will be developing an online CE course so that you can complete the (1) hour training in the coming weeks. Please review the proclamation so you are familiar with the two options.

In addition, in order to volunteer in your local area, you should fill out the information here with the Illinois Department of Public Health so that relevant information needed by local healthcare facilities can be collected to expedite the process. 

More information will be available soon!
