Farm organizations, including the American Farm Bureau Federation, are urging rural Americans to get vaccinated against COVID-19.

"Farmers make science-based decisions every day for the benefit of their farms, but today, we are asking them to make science-based decisions to ensure the health of their families and their communities," said AFBF President Zippy Duvall in an op-ed published in the Des Moines Register. "Having long played a critical role in maintaining the health of our rural communities and economies, farmers and ranchers can do so once again by getting vaccinated."
