Dental teams are ‘second in line’ for the COVID-19 vaccine, it has been confirmed.

Dentists and their colleagues – including receptionists and cleaners – fall under the second priority risk group in the first phase of the vaccine rollout, according to a source close to the government.

As a result, current government plans mean dental teams should be offered the first dose by mid February.

NHS England has confirmed all dental team members and their support staff in NHS and private settings will receive priority access to the COVID vaccine.

In an update from chief dental officer for England, Sara Hurley, writes that, alongside other health and care staff, dental professionals and their teams are now being prioritised for a COVID-19 vaccine.

She adds: ‘This means that dental teams supporting the NHS, those working in private or mixed practices will all be entitled to a vaccine, this includes specialist practices and clinical dental technicians registered with the CQC.’
