Dental workers anxiously wait for COVID-19 vaccine

AUSTIN (KXAN) – The Texas Dental Association said it’s not clear when the COVID-19 vaccine will be available for the majority of dental health care personnel.

“The TDA is actively working with state decision-makers to permit dentists and dental health care professionals to receive the vaccine,” said Dr. Matt Roberts, chair of TDA’s Council on Legislative, Regulatory, and Government Affairs. “The Texas Department of State Health Services (DSHS) and the state’s Expert Vaccine Allocation Panel (EVAP) have not specifically defined when the vaccine will be available.”

The TDA recently posted an update and message online from President Dr. Jacqueline Plemons outlining advocacy efforts to get dental workers vaccinated.
