New PSA urges people to stay healthy by staying up to date on vaccinations
Some diseases are on the rise as fewer adults and children get recommended vaccinations. In a new PSA, the American Hosptial Association asks people to stay up to date on vaccines, including the
COVID-19 vaccine, so they can continue doing the things they enjoy with the people they love.
A 2022 UNICEF and WHO report found the largest sustained decline in childhood vaccinations in roughly 30 years and a recent CDC report highlights the critical importance of protecting children and communities from vaccine-preventable diseases. If immunization rates drop futher, we risk widespread outbreaks of diseases that have been virtually eliminated such as polio, measles and more.
While vaccines, including the COVID-19 vaccines, have been proven safe, effective and life-saving, getting vaccinated is a choice everyone must make for themselves and their children. We hope this PSA helps convince people to choose vaccination. Up-to-date information on the COVID-19 vaccines can be found at cdc.gov or by reaching out and asking trusted physicians, nurses or other health care workers.
Please run this PSA from the American Hospital Association to help people stay healthy.
