Town hall features vaccine experts to address members’ questions

As COVID-19 cases surge to record highs nearly every day in the United States, the possibility of a COVID-19 vaccine that would be available as soon as the end of this year has sparked both hope and concern. To answer questions and address concerns of union members surrounding the development of a vaccine, three of the nation’s leading experts on vaccines took part in a virtual town hall on Dec. 2, sponsored by the AFT; the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees; and the Service Employees International Union. 

Finally—it’s President-elect Biden

Patience—counseled by former Vice President Joe Biden all election week as Americans waited for votes to be counted—finally paid off Nov. 7, four days after Election Day, when Biden won in Pennsylvania and gained enough Electoral College votes to acquire a new title: president-elect. AFT President Randi Weingarten says the union’s leaders and members “can’t wait to get started” on the work ahead “with an administration that will embrace and fight for the values we hold dear.”
