I got a recommendation to another dentist - but he was not accepting new patients and his receptionist said it's against Hippa rules to divulge whether or not their staff has been vaccinated. So I went to my regular dentist last week. I didn't ask again. I kept my mouth shut - as much as possible - but I wanted to tell them - "I don't know about you, but this is my first pandemic - You are health care professionals - I think my right to know if you've been vaccinated supersedes your osha, hippa, lds, lsd right to privacy."
