Vaccine Information

Since the beginning of this pandemic, ATU has fought to protect the safety and health of our members and the communities we serve. We have lost far too many members to this terrible pandemic. However, we have saved many more by winning important safety and health protections.

In no small part, our efforts were designed to buy time until safe and effective vaccines became available. That time has arrived. The COVID-19 vaccines have been approved through a rigorous, open, and transparent review process by independent scientific and public health experts after numerous multi-phase clinical trials of tens of thousands of people. Approved vaccines and booster shots are vital tools that reduce the impact of this deadly virus by protecting people from severe illness, hospitalization, and death.

We must work to ensure mass participation in vaccination programs by transit workers in order to protect ourselves, our coworkers, our families, our communities, and the transit industry.

Please refer to CDC (Español) and Health Canada (Français) resources for the latest information regarding approved COVID-19 vaccines and booster shots in the United States and Canada.
