(ABC 6 News) - Mayo Clinic is part of a group of 60 hospitals joining together across the country making a concerted effort to encourage adults to get vaccinated against COVID-19.

Mayo Clinic and Cleveland Clinic are leading the charge to "Get the Vaccine to Save Lives." The group of hospitals wants to reassure people that vaccines are safe and necessary in the fight against COVID-19.

"The vaccine is our strongest asset to end the pandemic and I urge everyone who is eligible to get whichever vaccine you're first offered to save lives," Dr. Gianrico Farrugia, M.D., Mayo Clinic's President and CEO, said.

The campaign is meant to reach people of all walks of life and encourage those that are hesitant about the vaccine to receive it when possible.
