Orange County Mayor Jerry L. Demings To Launch Public Safety Campaign to Combat COVID-19 Vaccine Hesitancy, Build Community Immunity
Orange County, Fla. – Orange County officials, along with representatives from the Florida Department of Health in Orange County, the City of Orlando, Orlando Economic Partnership, Visit Orlando, Walt Disney World and Universal Orlando will reveal a campaign that aims to debunk vaccine myths, highlight trusted voices in the community and encourage residents to get vaccinated. The hope is that vaccinated residents will then become advocates for the vaccine.
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. This campaign was developed at the request of Orange County Mayor Jerry L. Demings. A task force made up of tourism and business leaders in the region gathered with County staff to collaborate and produce an initiative that would engage local residents to get vaccinated.
