Public Health Order Requires Registrants' Proof of COVID-19 Vaccination

An Order of the Provincial Health Officer (PHO) was issued on March 7, 2022, The Health Professionals COVID-19 Vaccination Status Information and Preventive Measures Order, which requires the College of Dental Hygienists of BC (CDHBC) to record the COVID-19 vaccination status of all its registrants by March 31, 2022.
 
The College provided registrant information to the Ministry of Health (MOH) for matching against the Provincial Immunization Registry and
 
Unless we contact you for further information, you DO NOT need to provide any information to the College or the provincial government about your vaccination status.
 
This Order does not impose a COVID-19 vaccination requirement. However, separate public health orders remain in place requiring COVID-19 vaccination for health professionals working in residential care, acute care and community care settings.
 
More information about this Order and its requirements for registrants and the College is provided in a Q&A posted on the College website.
