Alton, IL

Law Would OK Dentists To Administer Vaccines

Story by WBGZ Radio

A new law under consideration would allow Illinois dentists to offer vaccinations to their patients.  Under the plan, Democratic Senator Bill Haine of Alton said if a dentist receives the proper training they could legally administer vaccines to patients for ailments like influenza.  

Lawmakers believe the idea is especially practical in rural parts of Illinois where there are a limited number of vaccination clinics.
