A Message from the AAAAI

As the COVID-19 pandemic continues, the AAAAI remains committed to providing you with resources that will help you navigate this difficult period. Our comprehensive set of resources includes the latest information on virus variants, talking to your patients about the COVID-19 vaccines, vaccine reactions, and more.  

AAAAI Joins 50+ Health Care Professional Organizations in Support of Mandatory Vaccination Against COVID-19 for Health Care Workers: We’re proud to join 50+ major health care professional organizations & societies in calling for mandatory COVID-19 vaccination for all health care workers. Health care workers have a duty to protect their patients, and that means getting the COVID-19 vaccine. The vaccine is safe, effective, and our best tool for ending the pandemic. As the health care community leads the way in requiring vaccines for our employees, we hope all other employers across the country will follow our lead and implement effective policies to encourage vaccination. The health and safety of U.S. workers, families, communities, and the nation depends on it. Read the full statement.

If you are an AAAAI member and have any specific questions regarding the treatment of patients or management of your practice, please contact us at practicematters@aaaai.orgAny patients with medical questions are advised to consult their own physician provider.
