Oxford resident Betsy Hubert is featured in a national campaign to raise awareness of the importance of COVID-19 vaccinations for public health, the economy, and society as a whole, writes Steven Hoffman for the Chester County Press.
The COVID-19 Vaccine Education and Equity Project – which consists of more than 150 leading groups that represent patient, provider, employer, and public health organizations – started the “Count Me In” campaign. This provides individuals and organizations with information that will help build confidence in authorized coronavirus vaccines and motivate and inspire people to fight the pandemic collectively.
In the campaign materials, Hubert expresses her intent to get the vaccine “because I want to get back to work.” She is president of the National Grange, a social organization based in Washington, D.C., that encourages families to band together to promote the economic and political well-being of the community and agriculture.
The campaign provides individuals and organizations with tools to express their commitment to getting the COVID-19 vaccine. This includes hearing personal stories from front-line physicians, the president of the American Nurses Association, and television hosts Meredith Vieira and Faith Jenkins, among many others.
“We are facing a turning point in the COVID-19 pandemic, which makes the ‘Count Me In’ campaign exceptionally timely,” said the COVID-19 Vaccine Education and Equity Project.
