Dentists as Vaccine Influencers

Dentists and dental teams can play a leading role in educating the public about the importance of getting a COVID-19 vaccination. We know the COVID-19 vaccine is a critical tool for ending the pandemic. Sharing your story of getting vaccinated can help combat misinformation and encourage others in your community to sign-up for a vaccine in the future.

The Virginia Dental Association (VDA) encourages members to share photos of staff in your practice getting the vaccine or images of your COVID-19 Vaccination Record Card. This is also an important opportunity to remind patients about safety procedures in place at dental offices. Our team has created some sample language you can use for Facebook or Instagram below.

SAMPLE POST LANGUAGE: 1 PERSON
