Excerpt from the ANA's revised immunization position statement:

The American Nurses Association (ANA) strongly recommends that all registered nurses, health care workers and the public be vaccinated against COVID-19. There is significant clinical evidence on the safety and effectiveness of the three approved COVID-19 vaccines (Pfizer-BioNTech, Moderna, and Johnson & Johnson/Janssen) being administered under the Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) Emergency Use Authorization process. With regard to these three vaccines, ANA does not support any exemptions other than for medical contraindications to being vaccinated against COVID-19.

As novel diseases emerge, such as COVID-19, ANA supports ongoing research and development of safe, easily accessed vaccinations for these public health threats. Vaccinations must be available and accessible to all to ensure public health and safety.
