Statement by Dale Petroskey President and CEO, Dallas Regional Chamber on FDA Approval of the Pfizer COVID-19 Vaccine

We know that the surest way to end the pandemic and get the Dallas Region back to business is for more people to get vaccinated. Our hope is that the FDA approval of the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine will ease any lingering concerns of individuals who have been hesitant to get the shot.

With this FDA approval, the time is now for companies and business leaders to do even more to encourage employees to get vaccinated so that our communities stay healthy, and our local businesses can stay open.


The Take Care of Business COVID-19 vaccine awareness campaign is an initiative of the Dallas Regional Chamber to encourage more people to get vaccinated in Dallas, Collin, Tarrant, and Denton Counties so local businesses can thrive again.
