WSDA has put together a guide to help authorized vaccinators within the dental community prepare to volunteer to give the COVID-19 vaccine.
With COVID-19 vaccine efforts increasing throughout Washington state, you may be considering volunteering to administer the COVID-19 vaccine and wondering what steps you need to take in order to do so.
WSDA has put together a guide to help authorized vaccinators within the dental community prepare to assist in this crucial public health effort. The guide, available at wsda.org/vaccine, covers:
Vaccine Volunteer Guide
- Who Is Authorized to Administer the Vaccine?
- What Training is Required?
- How Do I Sign Up to Volunteer?
- What Do I Need to Know Regarding Professional Liability?
I know that dentists across the state care deeply about the oral and overall health of all Washingtonians. By volunteering to administer COVID-19 vaccines, dentists can play a crucial role in helping to protect our communities. If you volunteer and would like to share stories or photos from your experience, please email them to email@example.com.
In addition to volunteering, you can also help build vaccine confidence among your patients with help from the ADA member toolkit “Talking with Your Patients About COVID-19 Vaccines” (log-in required).
Thank you for all you do.
