AADOCR Supports COVID-19 Vaccination Mandate for Oral Healthcare Workers

The American Association for Dental, Oral, and Craniofacial Research (AADOCR) is one of 12 oral healthcare organizations issuing a statement calling on governmental executive, regulatory, and legislative entities to mandate that all oral healthcare workers, including oral healthcare students and residents, be vaccinated against COVID-19. The statement recognizes that a small minority of oral healthcare workers may not be able to be vaccinated due to medical contraindications.

“As leaders in health care and research, we must advocate for policies supported by the best available scientific evidence,” said AADOCR President Jacques Nör, University of Michigan, Ann Arbor. “In this case, the COVID-19 vaccine is clearly necessary for the health and safety of oral health care workers and for the health and safety of the patients we serve.”
