MADISON — With cases of COVID-19 once again rising in Wisconsin and across the nation due to the Delta variant, Gov. Tony Evers today delivered the Democratic Radio Address urging Wisconsinites who have yet to receive their free, effective, and safe COVID-19 vaccine to do so as soon as possible. Getting shots in arms remains critical to ensuring the state and economy continue to recover from the coronavirus pandemic.
Hey, Wisconsin! Governor Tony Evers here.
Summer is in full swing, and boy, what a summer it’s been.
After following the science and working hard this past year to combat COVID-19, we’ve been able to start returning to doing the things we missed most: spending time with loved ones, traveling, enjoying all the things that make Wisconsin great.
I know we’re all ready to get back to our Wisconsin way of life, but we’re not out of the woods yet, folks.
This pandemic isn’t over, and the new Delta variant poses a serious threat to our public health—and to the progress we’ve made in trying to put this pandemic behind us.
We can’t afford to lose this important progress we’ve made. Making sure our state and our economy can recover depends on getting shots in arms so we can beat COVID-19.
The COVID-19 vaccine is safe and effective, and it’s based on years of science and research. Millions of Americans have gotten their shot, and most with minimal side effects.
So, if you’ve already gotten your shot, please talk to your family members, your friends, and your neighbors about why you got the COVID-19 vaccine.
And if you still need to get your vaccine, talk to your family doctor about getting the vaccine or visit vaccines.gov and find a shot near you.
If we keep working together and doing our part to beat COVID-19, we can put this pandemic behind us once and for all.
