The researchers sought to characterize intentions among dentists to be vaccinated against COVID-19. They surveyed 761 dentists and received 421 responses.
More than 82% of participants declared their intent to be vaccinated. Protecting family and friends was the main reason cited for supporting vaccination (87%), while a lack of information was cited as the main reason for opposing vaccination (39%).
"It is fundamental to consider vaccine hesitancy in health care workers and face it properly since they must provide recommendations to patients and promote adherence to vaccination programs," the researchers concluded.
