What local leaders are saying about the COVID vaccine

REP. SUMMER LEE

“My message is that it’s a vaccine that has been

proven to be effective, it is a safe vaccine that is going

to save lives. It’s already saving lives, it’s already

saving and freeing our community. My suggestion is

to absolutely get it.”

 

ESTHER L. BUSH

President/CEO, Urban League of Greater Pittsburgh

“There are a lot of people that are trying to meet the community

where they are, and share with them that we are concerned

about your health and we want you to take the vaccination.

I am extremely pleased of the work the Urban League

has been doing to reach out and try to influence people to

take a hard look at the fact that they really need to take this

COVID-19 vaccine.”

STEPHANIE MILLER, M.D., Family Medicine Physician

at Allegheny Health Network’s Braddock

location

“The COVID-19 vaccine is “safe. It has killed large portions of

our community, and I think this is the one tool that we have

to keep people alive. I don’t want people to roll the dice

with COVID and say, ‘I’m going to take my chances’…

because COVID will kill you.”
