Montgomery County Immunization Coalition (MCIC), Montgomery County, and Pennsylvania Immunization Coalition (PAIC) are excited to share that we are launching the third phase of our COVID-19 Vaccine Bus Campaign. Phase 3 focuses on encouraging 20- through 30-year-olds in the Black community to get their COVID-19 booster. Buses are wrapped in bright-colored advertising with positive design elements and the campaign message is reinforced with interior bus ads. Ads will also be running on platform digital displays at our Lansdale & Fort Washington Stations. The ads will run for 10 weeks.

To support our bus campaign, we have converted the bus ads into posters and social media images for education and outreach efforts. Below are links to these resources along with sample social media posts with our bus campaign hashtag #BoostYourProtection & LetsGetBack2Us.

MCIC launches social media toolkit to bring attention to the importance of COVID-19 vaccination, including boosters for National Minority Health Month in April. 

Montgomery County Immunization Coalition developed a Social Media Toolkit in support of National Minority Health Month (NMHM) in April. MCIC launched this kit to bring attention to the importance of COVID-19 vaccination, including boosters, as one of the strongest tools we have to end the COVID-19 pandemic that has disproportionately affected communities of color.

The toolkit includes social media messages and images in 6 languages (Chinese, English, Hindi, Korean, Spanish, Vietnamese) to encourage members of diverse communities to get vaccinated against COVID-19. Help us spread the word by using these messages and images on your social media platforms to encourage our communities to get all the recommended COVID-19 vaccines, including a booster during #NMHM2022. Together we can #BoostYourCommunity!

Montgomery County Immunization Coalition (MCIC) has developed a Social Media Toolkit in support of Asian American & Pacific Islander Heritage Month (AAPIHM) in May. MCIC’s toolkit focuses on supporting communities that have been disproportionately impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic by continuing to promote vaccine confidence.

The toolkit includes social media messages and images in 5 languages (Chinese, English, Hindi, Korean, Vietnamese) to encourage members of diverse communities to get vaccinated against COVID-19. Join us in celebrating AAPIHM by using these messages and images on your social media platforms to help our communities get all recommended COVID-19 vaccines and booster! Include the hashtags #VaxMontco and #AAPIHM with your posts.
