As we all continue to work tirelessly to mitigate the spread of COVID-19, it is certainly encouraging to have now firmly entered the vaccine distribution and administration phase of the pandemic. However, one thing cannot be ignored – the apprehension, confusion, and hesitancy that exists among many patients when it comes to getting vaccinated. Fortunately, a major check in the “pro COVID-19 vaccine” column is science, which needs to be heard loudly and clearly among the American public.
Enter the American Medical Association (AMA) who recently launched the “It’s Up To You” Covid-19 vaccine education initiative, geared to boost confidence in the safety and effectiveness of Food and Drug Administration (FDA)-approved vaccines.
Developed in conjunction with the COVID Collaborative, a coalition of the nation’s experts in health, education and the economy, the “It’s Up to You” campaign fosters COVID-19 vaccine education by encouraging patients who have lingering questions or doubts to either visit GetVaccineAnswers.org, or talk with a doctor, nurse or other health care professional to gain the information and learning necessary to make an informed decision for themself, and their family.
