KCMS Statement on COVID-19 Vaccination
As the rate of COVID-19 infections escalates in the Kansas City region and across much of the nation, spurred by the delta variant, the physicians of the Kansas City Medical Society strongly encourage all people who are eligible to obtain the COVID-19 vaccination.
The vaccine has proven to be safe and effective through clinical trials and now the experience of over 160 million Americans who have been vaccinated. Today, unvaccinated individuals comprise the overwhelming majority of patients being hospitalized with COVID-19. Experts advise that getting vaccinated remains everyone’s best protection—and our society’s most effective path out of the pandemic.
Your individual physician is a valuable resource on the COVID-19 vaccine and can answer any questions you may have.
