FORBES: ‘Most Patients Want Their Dentist Vaccinated’

Monday is the deadline for healthcare workers in New York State to get at least one dose of a Covid-19 vaccine. With just 84% of New York hospital workers vaccinated as of September 22, tens of thousands of unvaccinated workers could lose their jobs and healthcare organizations may face critical staff shortages.

While staff in New York hospitals, nursing homes, and home health agencies must now be vaccinated in order to do their jobs, there’s no mention in the emergency order of a key group of providers: dentists.

Across the country, vaccine mandates haven’t consistently included dentists and the federal vaccine mandate for healthcare workers does not apply directly to dental offices.
