The Texas Academy of Physician Assistants (TAPA) has been made aware that there is a circulating video of a Texas PA who is making inaccurate claims about vaccine safety and COVID-19 at a public meeting.

To be clear, TAPA leadership does not in any way support this PA's statements. We believe that the vaccines are safe and efficacious in combating the spread of COVID 19 as shown by the FDA’s willingness to grant them Emergency Use Authorization. We support the practice of Evidence Based Medicine and will continue to follow recommendations from the FDA and CDC to inform our practice.

Misinformation can be deadly and the Texas Academy of Physician Assistants' mission is to improve health for all.

Now is the time to unite together as we fight the pandemic.

Sincerely 

TAPA Board of Directors
