Our physician members have inquired about what vaccinations or injections may legally be provided by non-physician licensed health care professionals in Illinois.
That's why ISMS developed this
medical legal guideline covering six categories of non-physician licensed health care professionals and what injections/vaccinations they are allowed to administer.
For example, dentists may administer flu shots to patients 18 years old or older who have a prescription or standing order from a licensed physician. And pharmacists may administer vaccinations and immunizations to persons age 14 or older, and provide
patients ages 10 through 13 with flu and Tdap shots if those patients have a prescription or standing order from a licensed physician.
The categories in the resource include dentists, optometrists, pharmacists, physician assistants, podiatrists and registered nurses.
