Reasons I encourage you to think about getting vaccinated, too
What have you heard about vaccinations for COVID-19? I know there's been plenty of talk about the benefits and possible risks, and many people aren't sure whether they will get the vaccine just yet.
Since I care a great deal about you and your oral and overall health, I wanted to share my own personal experience with you. We're all in this together, and I feel an open dialogue is helpful to everyone.
I received my first vaccine on Feb 17, 2021 and I'm happy to say it went well. I will get my 2nd vaccine this Friday March 12. I was a little nervous but excited. I took Motrin 400mg 4 hours before and 400mg 6 hour later. I even went home and worked out. There were zero side effects. 8 of the 10 ( 2 are pregnant) personnel on our Dental Team received the Vaccine, and all 8 have had minimal to no side effects other than a slightly sore muscle at injection sight.
In truth, it was easy for me to say "yes" to the vaccine. This is because I've studied the current science, which shows these vaccines are safe and effective for nearly everyone. Of course, if you have medical concerns, please consult your physician.
Everyone in my Dental Practice is committed to your good health. That's why we wear PPE, are even more scrupulous about keeping our office and exam rooms spotlessly clean, and disinfected and requiring masks for all patients and visitors.
In my view, getting vaccinated is just one more way we can protect ourselves and each other.
I realize you may want to know more about COVID-19 vaccines and your health. I will be happy to address any questions you have.
I always look forward to seeing you and your family. SINCERELY,
