(AUSTIN, Texas – Dec. 21, 2020)  – The time is now to show leadership and confidence in the COVID-19 vaccine. We have the gift of science before us, and we applaud Gov. Greg Abbott for getting in line for the COVID-19 vaccination alongside the thousands of Texas health care workers who have already been vaccinated. State leadership has been instrumental in supporting Texas hospitals and ensuring their place at the front of the vaccination line. We are grateful for this support as we celebrate the beginning of the end of the COVID-19 pandemic.
