Williams Statement on Covid-19 Vaccine
March 30, 2021

Today, state Senator Sandra R. Williams (D-Cleveland) issued the following statement to clarify recent media reports about her Covid-19 vaccination status:

 “Despite the reports that I am hesitant about getting the Covid-19 vaccine, I am, in fact, supportive of getting vaccinations. My response has to do with my personal medical condition. I have an autoimmune disease. Per the CDC website, ‘People with autoimmune conditions may receive a Covid-19 vaccine. However, they should be aware that no data are currently available on the safety of Covid-19 vaccines for people with autoimmune conditions.’

“I understand the importance of vaccinations, and I will carefully make a decision with my physicians on whether or not to take the Covid-19 vaccine. Furthermore, I encourage anyone who has concerns about getting a vaccine, because of a medical condition, to talk to their physician.”
