LINCOLN, Neb. (KOLN) - Nebraska hospitals have turned to a widely respected man to convince people to get vaccinated against COVID-19. Former Congressman and Husker Coach Tom Osborne is the face of a new vaccine promotional video, produced by UNMC and Nebraska Medicine.

As highlighted in the message, unvaccinated patients in Nebraska hospitals now outnumber vaccinated patients by a ratio of 11:1. Nebraska hospitals, from Scottsbluff to Omaha, are near or at capacity and COVID-19 continues to stress health care systems statewide.

“Getting the vaccine is the right thing to do for all Nebraskans,” Osborne says in the video.
