Public Health District Begins Vaccine Campaign
Community Asked to Share Why Vaccinations are Important
CORPUS CHRISTI, TX – The Corpus Christi – Nueces County Public Health District has created a Facebook Profile Picture Frame as part of a COVID-19 vaccine public health campaign.
The #IReceivedTheCOVID19Vaccine campaign encourages residents to get vaccinated and share with others why they chose to receive the COVID-19 vaccine.
After receiving the COVID-19 vaccine, citizens are encouraged to take a selfie with their mobile device, update their Facebook profile picture, and add the Corpus Christi – Nueces County Public Health District's new frame.
"I’m excited that we are encouraging vaccinations in creative ways. When people see friends they know and trust getting a vaccine, they are more likely to get it themselves,” Mayor Paulette Guajardo said.
"The most powerful advice often comes from friends and family, and seeing someone, you know, and trust tell their vaccine story may be just what someone needs to decide to get vaccinated," Nueces County Judge Barbara Canales said. "I applaud and endorse this creative campaign and look forward to seeing personal stories from the community, which I believe can have a powerful impact and inspire others to act."
“Through this campaign, citizens can share why they chose to protect themselves, their families, and our community by getting vaccinated,” Public Health Director Annette Rodriguez said.
