Gabrielle Union-Wade, Dwyane Wade & Vaccinate Your Family | Don’t Skip PSA
Gabrielle Union-Wade and Vaccinate Your Family, in collaboration with Merck, are launching a TV and radio PSA campaign with the theme of Don’t Skip. The series of PSAs feature Union-Wade, Wade and their family during moments that reflect some of the realities of life during the pandemic, along with an important message: it’s okay to skip some things right now, but a visit to the doctor isn’t one of them. Vaccinate Your Family is a national nonprofit organization committed to helping protect people of all ages from vaccine-preventable diseases.
It is more important than ever to remind families to stay up to date with their recommended vaccines, for the following reasons:
Parents’ fears about COVID-19, stay-at-home policies, and other pandemic-related issues
caused families to stay away from doctors’ offices over the past year, with potentially
serious implications to national public health.
• Missed child well-visits have led to declines in recommended vaccination rates – it is
estimated that nine million doses of certain childhood vaccines may have been missed in 2020
alone, with up to a 26% drop in certain childhood vaccines between January and September 2020.
• Vaccines help protect people of all ages – from young children to preteens to adults –
PSA directors like you play a critical role in encouraging people to visit the doctor to stay up to date with recommended vaccines. Together we can increase awareness and help reduce the risk of vaccine-preventable diseases.
this message is important for everyone.
