About the Campaign
The HHS COVID-19 Public Education Campaign is a national initiative to increase public confidence in and uptake of COVID-19 vaccines and educate the public about the availability of COVID treatments while reinforcing basic prevention measures.
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.
Strategy and Goals
This effort focuses on Americans who want to protect their health, and may have questions about the COVID-19 vaccines. We aim to:
- Explain how Americans can protect themselves from COVID-19.
- Strengthen public confidence in the vaccines so people have the science-based information they need to make decisions about getting vaccinated and get protection from the worst outcomes of COVID-19.
- Increase vaccine uptake by informing Americans about how and where to get vaccinated.
