The Emergency Vaccinator Policies for COVID-19 is an interactive tool that displays temporary, emergency state policies authorizing specific professions to provide the COVID-19 vaccine. These policies expand on the types of personnel authorized to provide the COVID-19 vaccine beyond physicians, advanced practice nurses, and other traditional clinicians. It is important to note that this tool only represents emergency measures taken at the state level to address the vaccination workforce, and that general state scope-of-practice laws and federal policies are not displayed.

This interactive map continually tracks state-level emergency policies that expand the ability of specific groups to administer COVID-19 vaccines.
