MADISON — Gov. Tony Evers today delivered the Democratic Radio Address in advance of the July 4th holiday weekend urging Wisconsinites to roll up their sleeves and get the COVID-19 vaccine to help ensure the state’s continued economic recovery.

Hi, folks! Governor Tony Evers here.

The 4th of July is right around the corner. And boy, it sure looks different than it did last year!

This year, the 4th of July means we can celebrate safely—gather with loved ones, fire up the grill, enjoy the outdoors, and celebrate the founding of our country and the values we share—all the traditions we missed out on last year.

And, folks, we get to do that because we’ve trusted the science and public health experts, and we’ve put in the hard work to help beat the pandemic and make sure our state and our economy can bounce back.

And this year, we have lots to celebrate—we have one of the lowest unemployment rates in the country, Wisconsin businesses are bouncing back, and we’re a national leader in getting shots in arms.

But if we want to keep doing all the things we love and enjoy and make sure our state and economy continue to recover, we need you to roll up your sleeves and get vaccinated.

The COVID-19 vaccine is safe, effective, and based on years of research and science.

More 50 percent of Wisconsinites have had at least their first dose of the vaccine. And millions across the country have gotten their shot, most with minimal side effects.

So folks, if you haven’t gotten your vaccine yet, or you know a friend or family member who hasn’t gotten theirs, now is the time to get it.

Head over to vaccines.gov to find the nearest vaccine provider to you.

We’re in this together, Wisconsin, and I know that, by continuing to work together, we can put this pandemic behind us.

Thank you.
