The MHA published a consensus statement Aug. 6 on behalf of Michigan hospitals and health systems that urges members of their communities to receive one of the safe and effective COVID-19 vaccines.
“The vaccines are our best defense against this variant and the likelihood of future variants emerging. The vaccines are essential for us to stop COVID-19 and its future mutations,” the statement read. “We have an opportunity to make a difference in this public health crisis. Together, our actions will serve the public good, save lives and shorten the health and economic impact of the pandemic.”
