TDA Continues Advocating for Dentists and Dental Teams to Get COVID-19 Vaccine

TDA continues advocacy with the Texas Department of State Health Services (DSHS) and its Expert Vaccine Allocation Panel (EVAP), encouraging the panel to recommend that dental health care personnel be included in the groups eligible for COVID-19 vaccination in the second tier phase.

To augment our efforts, TDA submitted written testimony to DSHS’s Task Force on Infectious Disease Preparedness and Response that will meet on Monday, December 7, 2020, to discuss the state’s COVID-19 distribution plan. We will send TDA members an update on Tuesday, December 8, 2020, following that meeting.
