ISHA Supports Priority Access to COVID-19 Vaccines
ISHA President along with the ISHA Executive Board have released a letter related to priorization of the COVID-19 vaccine for audiologists and speech-language pathologists. ISHA supports the priority access to COVID-19 vaccines approved by the Food and Drug Administration for audiologists and speech-language pathologists who provide in-person assessment and treatment services. You can read the entire letter here.
As the COVID-19 vaccine distribution continues, ISHA encourages members to review the distribution phases in Illinois to determine when eligibility for the vaccine will occur. The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) has a link to each stat vaccination distribution plan, which can be accessed here.
ISHA will continue to advocate for priority vaccine access for our members recognizing that effective communication is essential and that our members will continue to provide needed services regardless of personal risk.
