The AAMC created VaccineVoices to provide our member institutions with practical tools and guidance as we all work to increase confidence in COVID-19 vaccines in communities and among health care personnel. 

Getting everyone in academic medicine vaccinated against COVID-19 will protect health care personnel — who have been heroic during this pandemic — and their families. “Everyone” includes not only doctors and nurses, but patient coordinators, environmental services staff, food service personnel and vendors, ambulatory staff, and many other important health care system team members. 

The AAMC understands that this work is a collaborative effort. The Multidisciplinary Advisory Committee (‘Contributors’) is a diverse committee with broad representation from member academic medical centers, medical schools, and community members to advise and inform the project. The role of the advisory committee includes, but is not limited to, providing expertise and input as the AAMC identifies best practices and implements strategies, reviewing information and resources to provide unique and critical insights, and participating in informational and educational webinars with populations of focus.
