Physicians implore their communities to take COVID vaccine when it's time

IU Health infectious disease physicians from around the state feel confident in taking the COVID-19 vaccine and are encouraging their communities to follow their lead.

"For the physicians that know the science and know the real or theoretic risks, the overwhelming majority of us are rolling up our sleeves," said Dr. Thomas Meyer, an infectious disease physician at IU Health Arnett in Lafayette. "I'm absolutely going to take the vaccine. I'm excited to take the vaccine."
