As dentists in B.C. advocate to be included in a priority group for the COVID-19 vaccine, they are also offering to help administer immunizations to residents.

Alastair Nicoll, chair of the BC Dental Association’s Return to Work Task Force, told CTV News Vancouver that dentists are excited that vaccines are coming and they’d like to help the province administer the shots.

“Dentists, through the offices of the BC Dental Association, have offered their services to the government of B.C. to assist with the rollout, just as dentists are doing in some of the other Canadian provinces to actually provide vaccinations as part of that, but I don’t know if they’ll take us up on that,” Nicoll said.
