Maricopa County’s New Promotional Campaign: Get the Facts, Then Get the Shot

May 2021

The campaign, supported through federal funds, will include television and radio ads, billboards, and social media promotions in English and Spanish. Every person featured in the photos and videos in this campaign are real Maricopa County residents who got vaccinated against COVID-19, and many of the photos are from actual vaccine events held across the county.

“It’s our job as leaders to share facts with residents. That’s what this campaign is all about,” said Maricopa County Board of Supervisors Chairman Jack Sellers. “It features local people from different backgrounds who chose to get vaccinated after learning about the safety and efficacy of COVID-19 vaccines. I hope residents will find this campaign relatable and informative and will consider getting the shot so we can all get back to doing what we love with the people we love.”

The goal is to reach people who may be on the fence about getting a COVID-19 vaccine. Maricopa County wants to let people know it’s okay to have questions, and that it’s important to seek out information from trusted sources including family doctors, healthcare providers, and public health professionals. And people who are interested but haven’t gotten vaccinated yet are encouraged to do so as soon as they can. Every person who gets vaccinated gets us closer to not worrying about getting or spreading COVID-19 infection.

Public Health data as of May 19 show 1.5 million Maricopa County residents are fully vaccinated against COVID-19. This means less than half of our neighbors — 41% of all Maricopa County residents and 47% of Maricopa County residents 10 years and older — have received at least 1 dose of COVID-19 vaccine. The “Take Care” campaign aims to increase that number through education.
