Millions of eligible Americans are taking a wait-and-see approach to COVID-19 vaccination, and this can have deadly consequences. Choosing to remain unvaccinated puts everyone at risk. As long as COVID-19 is spreading, new and potentially more dangerous variants can develop. The current rise and rapid spread of the highly infectious Delta variant is proving this in real time. In a matter of weeks, the decline in COVID-19 numbers brought on by increased vaccination has halted and case numbers are now creeping back up. The vaccine is effective against the Delta variant. The overwhelming majority of serious illness, hospitalizations, and deaths has been in unvaccinated people. Don't wait. Get vaccinated to protect yourself and others against COVID-19.
