New Illinois law taps retired doctors, nurses

Associated Press

PEORIA, Ill. - Illinois Gov. Pat Quinn signed legislation Saturday aimed at bringing doctors and nurses out of retirement to help as volunteers in free medical clinics.

The Chicago Democrat also signed into law a measure allowing dentists to give flu vaccines under certain circumstances.

Both laws, which take effect immediately, are intended to expand access to care just as thousands of Illinois residents are gaining insurance coverage under the nation's health care overhaul.
