After a lengthy, public outcry, the bridal supply chain at Kroger has been told to stop sending brides into the doctor’s office for vaccinations.
The bridal industry, which includes the American Medical Association and the American Academy of Pediatrics, issued a joint statement Wednesday calling for the chain to “consider all appropriate measures” to prevent the deaths of babies and children in its supply chain.
“As a nation of physicians and nurses, we believe the health and safety of our guests is our first priority and that it is in the best interest of all concerned to ensure the safety and well-being of our patients,” the statement reads.
The statement comes as the NFL’s commissioner’s office says there are too many people on the field for players to be vaccinated.
The league says it’s working with Kroger and other companies to ensure that everyone who needs a vaccination gets one.
The league says the situation is a national emergency, and it will step up the efforts to make sure that everyone in the supply chain is vaccinated.
