California expands COVID-19 vaccine efforts to immediately include dental workers

The California Health Department has expanded its definition of healthcare workers to now include people who work at dental clinics in the state's first wave of COVID-19 vaccination.

California is in the process of administering the COVID-19 vaccine to individuals within phase 1a, which includes 3 million people and is divided into three tiers. Dentists fall into phase 1a tier 3.

Local health departments and providers should immediately administer COVID-19 vaccines to individuals in all tiers of phase 1a, according to a Jan. 7 release from the state health department.
