A Call to Action by Dr. Nancy Messonnier

Jun 23, 2020 | Kimberly Sharpe-Scott

Dr. Nancy Messonnier, CDC’s Director of the National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases (NCIRD), has issued a Call to Action emphasizing that during these unprecedented times, help is critically needed to protect communities through vaccination. Maintaining coverage levels for vaccine-preventable diseases, preparing for the upcoming flu season, and working to protect at-risk and vulnerable populations are crucial activities.

Read Dr. Messonnier’s “Dear Colleague” letter which provides several CDC resources, and emphasizes an appreciation for partnership and continued support as public health professionals work to overcome the challenges we face amid COVID-19 and reduce the burden on the healthcare system.
