American College Of Surgeons - Inspiring Quality: Highest Standards, Better Outcomes

Have a conversation with your patients about COVID-19 vaccination

As surgeons, having difficult conversations with our patients is part of the job. Now we need your help in starting a new conversation: speaking with your patients about being vaccinated against COVID-19.

The American College of Surgeons has considered some frequently asked questions you may be getting from your patients. We realize that due to local issues, giving a uniform answer to these questions is not entirely possible. However, we hope you use this document as a guide and verify the information on a state and local level as well as with your hospital as you prepare to Talk It Up! with your patients.

#TalkItUp | It's very important.

The American College of Surgeons has developed the following resources to help prepare you to Talk It Up! with your patients.
