The HHS COVID-19 education campaign is a national initiative to increase public confidence in and distribution of COVID-19 vaccines, while strengthening key prevention measures such as wearing masks and social distancing.

Through a nationwide network of trusted messengers and a consistent, evidence-based public health message, the company helps the public make informed decisions about their health and COVID-19, including steps to protect themselves and their communities.

“In January, we mobilized nearly 50 local NGOs to conduct personal and virtual events, share resources and materials through trusted messengers, and receive pop-up vaccine clinics,” said vaccination campaign spokeswoman Zachary Dembner. “Events will take place across the country and in priority markets to promote initial vaccines and additional vaccinations.” These efforts are aimed at Americans who want to protect their health but may have questions regarding COVID-19 vaccines.

Another way in which Dembner and his team spread information about the COVID-19 vaccination is through their community against COVID-19 (CCC).

“The CCC began as an attempt to give people and organizations the opportunity to build trust in vaccines in their communities,” Dembner said. “Today, the CCC continues all of its initial efforts and has expanded to include more than 17,000 members covering a variety of health, sports, rural and religious organizations. CCC provides resources to trusted messengers so they can open up space to promote vaccines in person or online, reaching people where they are. The organizations talked about vaccination, testing clinics and promotion on social networks. ”

HHS has also launched a website called We Can Do This, which serves as a hub for volunteers to get statistics and stories to share locally, supporting over 300,000 unique visits and over 850,000 page views.

“It had dozens of toolkits and more than 95 videos in English and Spanish from trusted messengers presenting fact-based information about COVID-19,” Dembner said.

The COVID-19 public education campaign is organized on three themes that should slow the spread of COVID, strengthen trust in vaccines and protect our nation.

“We are growing every day as vaccination of as many people as possible becomes even more critical to the health, communities and economy of our country,” Dembner said.
