Help Knock out Flu in Washington State
The Washington State Department of Health recently launched a statewide flu prevention media campaign entitled “Knock Out Flu”. The goal of the campaign is to increase flu vaccination rates among WA residents.
You can participate in the Knock Out Flu campaign by sharing materials with your colleagues, contacts, and partners. We hope you’ll join us in creating original content with the hashtag #KnockOutFlu on social media and join the fun with your own creative photos that include boxing gloves to help spread the message!
This campaign includes the following materials and resources:
- DOH flu resource landing pages:
- Movie theater video ad (YouTube link: https://youtu.be/1jAcY6vijbE)
- Printable, bilingual resources for public health professionals, pharmacies and provider locations:
- Promoted social media messages across Facebook, Instagram and Twitter aimed at increasing awareness of vaccination locations including pharmacies, provider clinics and retail locations. Follow and share DOH’s social media to keep up to date and increase the reach of our messages.
