The COVID-19 Community Corps

U.S. Department of Health and Human Services

About the organization

The HHS COVID-19 public education campaign is a national initiative to increase public confidence in and uptake of COVID-19 vaccines while reinforcing basic prevention measures such as mask wearing and social distancing.

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

The effort is driven by communication science and provides tailored information for at-risk groups

Duties

Our best path out of the COVID-19 pandemic is for every American to get a COVID-19 vaccination as soon as it’s available to them.

Fact sheets on vaccine safety, tips on how to talk with friends and family about the importance of vaccination, and hints for planning and attending community events
Social media content to share with your followers
