Dear NE Florida dentists,
As we all maneuver the ongoing COVID landscape all dentists are intent on finding options for vaccination of themselves and the clinical care members of their staffs. Many have found outlets already, and much of the consternation is the present lack of supply of the vaccine available as well.
In an attempt to help our dental practices, we have partnered with Baptist Health systems to get our dental teams in the five NE Florida counties an opportunity to register your dental teams and be contacted when the vaccine becomes available supply wise. Dentists and their clinical care team members are recognized across the board as tier 1A professionals, and they are certainly in line for available options of the vaccine if they so choose. If the doctor/dentist chooses not to be vaccinated the clinical staff can still be registered for the vaccine opportunity.
To get in the que please fill out the attached Excel spreadsheet (ED Copy of COVIDVaccineEligibilityForm1 5 21 - NE Fl DDS-2) with all the pertinent information required, and the list of staff that are interested in the vaccine as well, and then email it to email@example.com and they will then reach out to you as the options open. They will schedule opportunities from there, and as supplies allow. We have tried to determine if logistically we can schedule the team all at once so we can minimize interruption to the office flow over many days. We will continue to work together with Baptist to see if that will be possible.
I want to thank the Baptist Health system for this opportunity to collaborate and get all our members and their staffs another option to receive the vaccines as they roll out. We are trying to help the general populace of the NE Florida area by keeping our medical and dental professionals working in direct clinical care healthy, and in turn the community at large as well.
