Teachers, school staff, and workers in child care programs: @POTUS is challenging states to get you your first #COVID19 vaccine by the end of March. The federal retail pharmacy program will prioritize your vaccinations. Find participating pharmacies here: https://t.co/lmCctm9P1Q
Thank you @Georgia_Bio for presenting @CDCgov with the Phoenix Award for fostered innovation and collaboration in response to the #COVID19 pandemic. The amazing and dedicated staff at CDC have been working tirelessly to #StopTheSpread of COVID-19 since the pandemic began.
The most important thing you can do is roll up your sleeve and get vaccinated with the first vaccine offered to you! Visit CDC's updated site for information about the new Johnson & Johnson #COVID19 vaccine, including what to know before getting a vaccine: https://t.co/gvIZSduATF
Proud that CDC is taking a leading role in helping to achieve @POTUS’s initiative to get teachers, other school staff, & childcare workers vaccinated. I look forward to working with our pharmacy, state, & local partners in the days ahead to move this critical work forward. https://t.co/EUdcFyDWw3
Today, I am directing every state to prioritize educators for vaccination. We want every educator, school staff member, and child-care worker to receive at least one shot by the end of this month.
It’s time to treat in-person learning like the essential service that it is.
I know that stamina has worn thin & fatigue appears to be winning, but we must continue to fight against #COVID19. Wear a well-fitting mask, avoid travel & crowds, social distance, & practice good hand hygiene. Now more than ever, we must do all we can to #StopTheSpread. https://t.co/ETXcHukJdT
We are well on our way. Very encouraged to see today that now 50 million people in the US have received at least one dose of #COVID19 vaccine. Thank you to everyone who has rolled up their sleeve with confidence! Continue to track our progress: https://t.co/OJqqz8sRTuhttps://t.co/wU1CcVEfce
Cases remain at very high levels, and #COVID19 variants are a very real threat to our progress. Now is not the time to relax the critical safeguards that we know can #StopTheSpread of COVID-19 in our communities and prevent another surge in cases. https://t.co/uGOhDUGFje
WATCH: Today, our public health experts are joined by COVID-19 response team coordinator Jeff Zients to talk through all things Johnson & Johnson vaccine and the progress we’ve made in our vaccination program in the last week. https://t.co/X4HFEkx15H
I know that many Americans look forward to rolling up their sleeves with confidence as soon as a #COVID19 vaccine is available to them. Getting vaccinated when a vaccine is available to you will help protect all of us from COVID-19. https://t.co/snNwCShi1dhttps://t.co/Y3wSrkXZAE
This vaccine is one more tool we have to stop #COVID19. We must also continue to be vigilant & committed to consistently doing what we know works to #StopTheSpread - #WearAMask, stay 6 ft apart, avoid crowds & poorly ventilated spaces.
As vaccination scales up, so does our nation’s overall protection from serious outcomes due to #COVID19. The Janssen vaccine has been shown to be safe and effective in preventing severe COVID-19 illness, hospitalization, and death.
Today marks an encouraging step toward an end to the #COVID19 pandemic. I have now signed CDC’s Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices’ (ACIP) recommendation that endorsed the safety and effectiveness of Janssen’s COVID-19 vaccine for people 18 & up. https://t.co/POw8b9BsdShttps://t.co/c1IbMYtKdp
.@CDCgov is excited to provide scientific guidance to inform the “It’s Up To You” campaign, @AdCouncil and @theCOVIDCollab’s #COVID19 Vaccine Education Initiative. Our shared goal is to help everyone feel confident and prepared to get vaccinated once eligible.
Just as we are taking action to address the inequities the #COVID19 pandemic laid bare, we need a concerted approach to bring an end to the pandemic and to leverage the lessons learned during COVID-19 to achieve optimal health for all.
Public education is a critical component of our response to the #COVID19 pandemic. It is a shared effort to empower people to protect themselves, especially those in disproportionally burdened populations. https://t.co/h9cZcnPDMR
In partnership with @theCOVIDCollab, today we are proud to announce the creative platform for our COVID-19 vaccine education initiative, “It’s Up To You,” the largest and most critical communications effort in our nation’s history. https://t.co/KfSZAYufUY
Grateful to engage in so many insightful conversations at the #COVIDVaccineForum about our nation’s #COVID19 vaccination strategy. Every person, community, organization, partner, and business has a role to play in supporting this strategy. Resources: https://t.co/dJMa7SGqmu
We are on track to get 100 million #COVID19 vaccines into arms in the first 100 days of the Biden-Harris administration. After hitting that milestone, we will still need to get the rest of the American people vaccinated. Saves lives, get the vaccine when it is available to you! https://t.co/d4dyMZEe9O
