Get Vaccinated Now — the Delta Variant is Spreading
Last week the Director of the CDC made it plain – 97% of new COVID-19 hospitalizations are people who are unvaccinated, making COVID-19 a “pandemic of the unvaccinated.”
The Delta Variant is spreading and the Union recommends that everyone get vaccinated right away.
More than 65% of eligible adults in the U.S. now vaccinated — but only 47% of our MTA Brothers and Sisters are vaccinated. More needs to be done so that we can protect ourselves and our families.
These are facts:
Vaccines are safe and effective in preventing severe illness and death from COVID-19.
Vaccines reduce the risk of spreading COVID-19.
Vaccines are also effective against COVID-causing variants, which are spreading across the U.S.
Vaccines are free and easy to get these locations

Get vaccinated. The life you save could be your own or that of a family member. It’s not only about fatalities. COVID-19 can produce long-lasting adverse effects after you recover from an infection.
