The Real Impact of Vaccine-Preventable Diseases
Dear PSA Director,
Every day in the U.S., families are losing loved ones to flu and COVID, and diseases like measles and polio are re-emerging because immunization rates have declined. To help motivate people to get vaccinated, new radio PSAs feature advocates who’ve been personally impacted by flu and COVID.
The new PSAs available from Vaccinate Your Family inform listeners about the importance of timely immunizations.
• Jen, which features a mom who lost her 8-year-old daughter, Madison, to flu in February 2020
• Nicole, which features a mom who lost her 10-year-old daughter, Teresa, to COVID in September 2021
• Maria (English and Spanish), which features a woman who was hospitalized for 130 days with COVID before vaccines were available
• Sarah, which features a mom who got her COVID-19 vaccine while pregnant to help protect her unborn baby
On the Vaccinate Your Family website, people can learn how to help protect their families from vaccine-preventable diseases in English and Spanish. I’d also be happy to coordinate interviews with these advocates who can share more about their personal stories. Representatives from Vaccinate Your Family are also available to discuss the critical need for timely immunizations.
