Delta Dental participating providers and their practice staff were had the opportunity to register for the Moderna COVID-19 Vaccine and reservations for 600 doses of the vaccine were filled in less than 48 hours. DDOK and Variety Care staff members worked together tirelessly to organize and administer this event in a very short time-frame.
Oklahoma dental professionals put themselves at risk every day and now hundreds are relieved to have the vaccine process started.
“We have aerosolization coming out of mouths inherently and then tools are spreading or spraying the droplets further,” Grant Pitt, DDS explained to KOCO. “To me this is just one more step in getting us back to normalcy.” KOCO story available here.
The Moderna COVID-19 Vaccine is administered in a two (2)-dose series, one (1) month apart. Recipients who received their first dose of the vaccine at this clinic will return for a second clinic hosted by DDOK and Variety Care in mid-February to receive their additional dose.
