AMA applauds nationwide 16+ vaccination eligibility, urges "Now it's your turn"


Statement attributable to: Susan R. Bailey, M.D., American Medical Association President

"As of today, in every state, all people age 16 and up are now eligible for the COVID-19 vaccine. Nearly 40 percent of the U.S. population has gotten at least one dose, and more than a quarter of the population is fully vaccinated. Now it's your turn because vaccines work - and save lives. Even as more transmissible and dangerous strains of COVID-19 spread, vaccinations have helped flatten the curve, offering a clear path toward normalcy. For your health, for your loved ones, and for your community, we urge you to get vaccinated."

"If you or people you love have questions about vaccines, we urge you to talk to your physician. The consensus of public health and medical professionals confirms that vaccines are the best way to defeat this virus - with benefits far outweighing the risk for most people. If you continue to have questions, we urge you to learn more from reputable sources including, the CDC, the AMA or other public health authorities."
