During last Thursday’s webinar, I mentioned a release from the Maine Board of Dental Practice, in which the Board states that the new vaccination rule that applies to dental professionals, healthcare workers, and EMS workers, is a CDC rule not a rule of the Dental Board.

It can be a little tough to find this release online, so I’ve linked to it here.

As of today,l do not believe that the CDC permanent rulemaking process has commenced and the public comment period is not yet open. That is subject to change. You will want to monitor the Maine CDC pages regularly and once the rule is open for comment, feel free to submit your thoughts pro or con: https://www.maine.gov/dhhs/mecdc/rules/maine-cdc-rules.shtml.

Hope this helps.
