AMAC believes the COVID-19 vaccine should be available to those who choose to receive it and objects to any federal or state directive for mandatory vaccinations. Americans who are age 65 or older, which will often include those at the highest risk for infection, should be prioritized to receive the vaccine along with frontline workers. AMAC disagrees with the CDC’s guidance that places people who are age 65 and older on a lower tier to receive the vaccine. AMAC endorses the vaccine distribution plan in place in the state of Florida, which positions individuals who are age 65 and older in the first priority, and suggests governors across America move to adopt this blueprint. We also urge the CDC to amend their advisory to reflect Florida’s strategy for vaccine distribution.
