Don't Wait Vaccinate Campaign
The California Immunization Coalition (CIC) is collaborating with the California Department of Public Health and numerous professional organizations and health plan partners to take action in preventing influenza disease in our communities. In order to prevent another disease outbreak, on top of the pandemic we are urging parents and adults: #DontWaitVaccinate.
Health care providers and especially our pharmacies, have already started vaccination programs in our communities. CIC and partners have developed a comprehensive set of images, messages, templates and key messages to help health care professionals, educators and advocates promote influenza vaccination with a reminder to not delay.
As always, we encourage parents and adults to consult with their health care provider to determine the best timing and vaccine for their health needs.
Social Media Messages & Images
Immunization rates in California have dropped precipitously during the COVID-19 pandemic, raising alarm bells for the health and safety of our children, patients and families. This California campaign is designed to remind parents and adults: #DontWaitVaccinate.
This toolkit is designed to help health care professionals, health plans, public health information officers, immunization program managers, coalitions, school administrators, advocates and partner organizations work together to support providers and urge patients to schedule and keep routine checkups and immunization visits.
Included in the toolkit you’ll find a variety of messaging to share with your networks to encourage patients to reconnect with their providers. You are encouraged to tailor these messages to meet the needs of your local community.
