Communist Party USA
The global Covid-19 pandemic has killed more than 600,000 in the United States and 4 million worldwide. Several safe and effective vaccines have been developed and fully tested, and are now protecting millions of people from serious illness and death. The CPUSA recognizes that we protect ourselves, our families, and our communities by getting vaccinated and by following local guidelines regarding masking and social distancing. We urge everyone who can safely do so (that’s almost all of us) to be fully vaccinated. As CPUSA collectives begin to meet again in real life, we believe that anyone attending an in-person meeting should be able to attend with confidence that all participants are fully vaccinated. A small minority of us have medical reasons that prevent us from getting the vaccine safely, and for others, immunosuppressants interfere with the vaccine’s effectiveness. Clubs, committees, and other collectives should have an option for comrades to join meetings virtually (e.g., Zoom or conference call). Please protect your health and your community’s health. We have lost many dedicated comrades to this virus; we cannot lose another one. Image: New York City MTA (CC BY 2.0).
