I hope you had a restful holiday weekend and were able to safely connect with family and friends. Amazing to think that it’s December already!
AFT Townhall Wednesday, December 2
Along with AFSCME and SEIU, AFT is holding a virtual town hall with leading experts and career officials intimately familiar with COVID-19 vaccine approval and distribution. They will answer questions, dispel myths and help inform our members how the vaccines work.
This event is designed to provide you with information from credible sources. We believe all of the participating panelists are qualified and free from political influence. This is not an endorsement of a vaccine that has not yet been approved, much less validated by a consensus opinion from the qualified scientific community. But, given the possibility that vaccines will be available as early as mid-December, we think it is important that AFT members be well informed about the process of development, distribution and vaccination.
The event will take place over Zoom on Wednesday, Dec. 2, at 6 p.m. EST. Please register for the event here and use this form to submit your questions for our panelists. A Spanish language translation will be available during the webinar.
