I’m priority group 1a, level 3. We’re supposed to be in the next 4 weeks after front line workers and nursing home residents and workers, but who knows. Originally we dentists were AFTER the non-hospital pharmacists, but Michigan DPH moved us to the first group of level 3. Might be because our Governor is married to a dentist…though our state dental association did lobby heavily for a higher position.
My receptionist asked my thoughts about the vaccine because she was uncertain if she should get it. My age, health issues, hasn’t been that careful outside the office (I am very strict about all PPE). I said to her there haven’t been any deaths from the vaccine, the possible side effects last maybe 2 days. Covid can kill you, you can get very sick and take a while to recover, plus you may have long- lasting health issues. I’ll take my chances on the vaccine. Her response: guess I really didn’t think of it like that. So, she’s in.
