Message to the COVID-19 Community Corps: August 17, 2021
Community Corps members:
The CDC has released new data on the safety of the COVID-19 vaccines for pregnant people and is recommending all people 12 years of age and older, including pregnant people, get vaccinated against COVID-19.
We’re calling on Community Corps members to help amplify this important topic to increase COVID-19 vaccine confidence.
TAKE ACTION: Post on social media to let all people who are pregnant, those who are thinking about becoming pregnant, and those who are breastfeeding to get vaccinated to protect themselves from COVID-19.
The vaccines are safe and effective, and it has never been more urgent to increase vaccinations as we face the highly transmissible Delta variant and see severe outcomes from COVID-19 among unvaccinated pregnant people.
For more on COVID-19 vaccines and pregnant people, please visit the CDC website for the latest resources here.
Thanks for all you do.
The HHS COVID-19 Community Corps Team
