COVID VACCINATION INFORMATION
For Dental Offices, your local Health Department will be the point of contact. Within the next several days, your office should receive an email from your county HD requesting email contact for all staff members and risk. Please make sure that your dentist or office manager has a current email address for you. After this information is submitted, you will receive a link from CVMS where you will validate your risk then set up a date, time, and location where you will go to receive your vaccination. While there remains much consternation concerning the vaccination, it is our hope that enough of the population will participate so that we can start to see the beginning of the end of this awful situation. We are in one of the highest risk professions for contracting COVID -19; the arrival of proven effective and efficient vaccinations are as critical as our daily PPE and disinfection routines. I have researched the Pfizer and Moderna vaccinations in-depth and personally feel that they are safe…. certainly safer than contracting COVID. I will be glad to discuss with anyone if you have any questions.
As leaders in the healthcare profession, we will collect photos to put on our website and social media of those of you who want to “roll up your sleeve to knock out COVID”
