AHA Ad Urges Americans to Get Vaccinated and Boosted as Omicron Cases Rise Significantly

A new AHA ad that will run in The New York Times and The Washington Post highlights the urgent need for all individuals to get vaccinated, get a booster shot and follow public health guidelines as COVID-19 cases and hospitalizations increase rapidly across the country.

We're heartbroken. We're overwhelmed. — Open Letter from Minnesota Hospitals. Those words are repeated over and over again in America's hospitals. COVID is killing our patients and overwhelming our hospitals. Unvaccinated people are 14 times more likely to die from COVID-19. Thousands of people on their deathbeds repeat a simple line: "I wish I had gotten vaccinated." Get vaccinated. Get a booster. Follow the public health guidelines. Remember this ad. Before you are desperately sick in a hospital bed.
