Two new public service announcements (PSAs) are encouraging the Filipino community to get fully vaccinated as the number of COVID-19 infections remain high with a new variant lurking.
The videos feature members of the Filipino community and were produced by the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa John A. Burns School of Medicine (JABSOM) and EMME INC. for broadcast and social media channels.
“Vaccination and preventative measures are our best way forward. Help keep yourself, your family, our community and health-workers safe,” said Lee Buenconsejo-Lum, associate dean of academic affairs at JABSOM. “These PSAs speak to the Filipino community whom we hope will understand the importance and need for ourselves and our loved ones—to vaccinate.”
