Orange County Government Launches Targeted Billboard Campaign to Increase COVID-19 Vaccination Rates
‘I Got My Shot’ Billboards Feature Central Florida Physicians, Families and Local Pastors
Orange County, Fla. – The Orange County Communication Task Force that launched the “I Got My Shot” public safety campaign is expanding its commitment to educating and encouraging residents to be vaccinated. With over 120 convenient and free COVID-19 vaccination sites countywide, the “I Got My Shot” Communications Task Force is launching a targeted billboard campaign aimed to encourage residents to find a nearby location and to get vaccinated.
Eighteen public service messages will go up on Monday, June 7, 2021 and remain in place for 12 weeks. The billboards will go where the data from the Florida Department of Health in Orange County show they are most needed based on vaccination rates in the area.
Orange County Government collaborated with over 10 local physicians, four families and four places of worship for the creation, support and rollout of these billboards.
The campaign’s goal is to make all residents aware of the safety, convenience and benefits of receiving the vaccine as soon as possible to build “community immunity.”
WHAT: An extension of the “I Got My Shot” public safety campaign, 18 print billboards will be displayed across Orange County to further encourage residents to get vaccinated.
