Dear AzDA Members,
With 2021 underway, your Arizona Dental Association (AzDA) has been and continues to stress that dentistry is essential healthcare and AzDA has worked to get dentists in Phase 1A for Arizona’s vaccine administration. As far as the actual planning/distribution of the vaccine, the government is handling that, taking into consideration various populations, the amount of vaccines they have, the number of vaccine providers they have, etc. We will continue to share information we receive with AzDA members, and if you have questions before then, please check your county health department’s website or contact your county health department. To find out county specific information for the vaccine and other information, please visit - https://www.azdhs.gov/preparedness/epidemiology-disease-control/infectious-disease-epidemiology/index.php#novel-coronavirus-vaccine
To not miss out on AzDA’s updates in 2021 and to take advantage of other AzDA benefits (advocacy, CE, PPE, member savings, etc.) be sure to register for your 2021 membership TODAY at https://www.azda.org/member-center/join-us.
AzDA dentists who register for membership soon will also automatically receive a free allotment of PPE (while supplies last) and discounts on AzDA’s 2021 WRDE (where you can receive up to 18 CUEs) - https://westernregional.org/2021/.
Overall, AzDA continues to represent and work for you. These efforts began at the outset of the COVID-19 crisis and will only continue. We truly appreciate your support and AzDA membership during this time. We will get through this together.
