PREP Act Declaration
The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), under a Public Readiness and Emergency Preparedness (PREP) Act Declaration, has expanded the category of individuals who are authorized to administer COVID-19 vaccines. The OHA has expanded the list of providers to Registered Dental Hygienists.
If dentists are currently licensed, and want to provide vaccines in a dental clinic, they are required to comply with all vaccination training requirements under OAR 818-012-0006 and OAR-818-012-0007
Under the PREP Act, Registered Dental Hygienists and Dentists are permitted to provide COVID-19 vaccines at a location that has currently practicing health care professionals experienced in administering intramuscular injections on site to provide monitoring and supervision. Please see updated guidance below:

COVID-19 Vaccine

Please defer all questions regarding obtaining the COVID-19 vaccine to the Oregon Health Authority. The Board does not have any information on when the vaccine will be available for all dental professionals. For other COVID-19 related updates, please refer to our COVID-19 Resources tab above.
The Oregon Health Authority is putting out a call to current and previously licensed healthcare professionals in Oregon to register with SERV-OR to volunteer in support of COVID-19 vaccination efforts. As you know, health care resources are strained, and communities need health care professionals who can make themselves available to join the response. Below is a brochure to learn more about SERV-OR. If you are interested, please visit SERV-OR and sign up today.
Please be aware that all Licensees must comply with the requirement to maintain a current and valid BLS/CPR for Healthcare Providers (and/or ACLS/PALS certificates if necessary for your anesthesia permit requirements). These must be maintained at all times while licensed by the Oregon Board of Dentistry.
*Reminder - Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS) and/or Pediatric Advanced Life Support (PALS) do not serve as a substitute for Healthcare Provider Basic Life Support (BLS).

Beware of Scammers

The DEA and the OBD are aware of various scammers claiming to be Board staff to gain confidential information and possibly extort Licensees for money or information. The OBD will never ask for payment by phone or email.
