Recently Health Canada and the Public Health Agency of Canada have developed a variety of new resource products focused on the Government of Canada’s vaccination efforts, which can be easily integrated into a wide variety of communication channels.
Together, we are encouraging people in Canada to share why they plan to get vaccinated (or already have) through the “My Why” social media campaign that launched on April 13. They can share their stories on Twitter or Facebook and can tag @GovCanHealth, and use the hashtag #MyWhy. Please see the PDF for more information.
We would also like to continue to leverage your support in the distribution of resources to your clients and stakeholders.
Along these lines, we wanted to keep you up to speed on our latest videos, factsheets, social media and outreach efforts about COVID-19 Vaccines.
