Advocacy Action Alert ADA
Diabetes & COVID-19 Vaccine Access:
Contact Your Governor

States are rolling out their COVID-19 vaccination plans, and some states are not giving people with type 1 and type 2 diabetes equal access to the vaccine. Vaccination is an important tool to protect everyone with diabetes and end the pandemic, which clinical evidence has shown puts people with diabetes at increased risk for severe illness.

That's where ADA needs your voice: Will you ask your Governor to prioritize all people with diabetes for the vaccine?

Over 5,000 ADA Advocates have contacted their governors already, but we are going to need more people to break through. Join us today, and help spread the word by sharing this with your family, friends, and networks.


Making this change is time-sensitive, as states are now operationalizing vaccine rollouts.

Together, we'll keep working to ensure decision makers understand that people with diabetes have been disparately impacted by the pandemic and must be prioritized in vaccine distribution plans. Join us in contacting your governor today.
