Wisconsin Dentists Could Join the Vaccine Ranks
MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Dentists could soon be joining the ranks of vaccinators in Wisconsin as vaccine supply is expected to increase and everyone becomes eligible starting in May. The state Legislature is scheduled to vote today on a bill that would allow dentists to administer the vaccine as well as the flu shot, once they undergo eight hours of specific training. About 20 states have expanded who can administer the COVID-19 vaccine as part of the effort to speed vaccinations. As of Monday, 23.1% of people in Wisconsin had received at least one dose of the vaccine.
