Campaign Goals

"There's Unity in Immunity" is a statewide, collaborative public service awareness campaign to:

  • Encourage vaccination to help achieve herd immunity in the summer.
  • Address vaccine hesitancy, especially in communities of color that have been hardest hit by COVID-19.
  • Build confidence in the vaccines by dispelling fears and misinformation.
  • Share messages from vaccinated individuals to communicate the value and benefits of COVID-19 vaccines.

Designed for all IHA members, the campaign features a member toolkit, digital assets, resources and other key messaging. IHA will lead a targeted social media campaign focused on the south and west sides of Chicago, rural Illinois, and other areas of the state. Contact us with any questions.
