Dr. Anne Rimoin, UCLA Fielding School of Public Health professor of epidemiology, presented a public service announcement at the 93rd Academy Awards about the importance of getting vaccinated against COVID-19. The segment aired on ABC's pre-Oscars "Into the Spotlight" show and was broadcast by more than 100 television stations.

"I'm a professor of epidemiology at the UCLA Fielding School of Public Health and a huge movie fan; the number of experts who collaborated to ensure everyone's safety tonight is bigger than the cast of most blockbuster moves," Rimoin said. "By implementing health protocols, wearing masks, social distancing, and continually testing right up until show time, so many people — scientists, doctors, unions and more — worked tirelessly to make tonight's Academy Awards possible. But the work is far from over; the path back to the moments we miss is for us to all be vaccinated, and it's free. So please get vaccinated, stay safe, and enjoy the Oscars."
