COVID VACCINE INFORMATION
Florida 'soft-launches' statewide COVID-19 vaccine pre-registration website - click here.
The Sunshine State is offering another way for residents to sign up for the COVID-19 vaccine.
State officials announced the launch of an online pre-registration system for the COVID-19 vaccine, which can be found at myvaccine.fl.gov. They said those who sign-up will be "proactively contacted" when appointments are available at state-supported vaccination sites.
CORONA VIRUS INFORMATION
The Florida Dental Association (FDA) has developed a toolkit for members whose practices are managing exposure to COVID-19. It can be found on the Practice Resources & Forms webpage and includes resources such as:
Also, on the FDA website under the Human Resources FAQs, you can find answers to such questions as, “Can I require my staff be tested for COVID-19?” The answer is yes. You can require a staff member to get tested, but you should ensure that the test is accurate and reliable.
A new addition to the HR FAQs this week is Florida-specific information that fully answers the question, “Can I require employees to be vaccinated?” Dentists and dental team members are in the top tier of vaccine distributions, but we know that many vaccine sites are overwhelmed. The FDA remains in contact with the governor’s office and state officials; the information we’ve received from them is to keep trying. As additional vaccine quantities are available, counties will open and fill new appointments. To this point, demand for the vaccine has simply exceeded the supply.
