60 top health systems urge public to 'get the vaccine to save lives' in new campaign 

Cleveland Clinic and Rochester, Minn.-based Mayo Clinic are leading a new national campaign alongside 58 other top health systems to encourage adults to get vaccinated against COVID-19. 

The "Get the Vaccine to Save Lives" campaign aims to communicate to the public that vaccines are safe, effective, and necessary to achieve herd immunity and return to normal activities. With the initiative, the coalition of hospitals and health systems hopes to reach adults who are hesitant to receive a vaccine, including minority racial and ethnic groups and people living in rural communities. 

"We're asking people to talk to their healthcare providers if they have questions and then get vaccinated," Mayo Clinic President and CEO Gianrico Farrugia, MD, said in the April 20 news release. "The vaccine is our strongest asset to end the pandemic, and I urge everyone who is eligible to get whichever vaccine you're first offered to save lives." 

The nationwide campaign includes print and digital advertising, media outreach, social media, an awareness video and an informational website. Cleveland Clinic and Mayo Clinic worked with Ethos Creative Group to develop the campaign and received complimentary resources from Facebook, YouTube, The New York Times and USA Today, among others.
