    Using an FP social media platform for COVID-19 vaccine promotion in the Philippines: Supporting Department of Health’s National Vaccination Days #BayanihanBakunahan

    USAID Philippines’  ReachHealth team has several robust social media platforms that reach specific audience segments with family planning messages. USAID’s Breakthrough ACTION COVID Vaccine project worked with ReachHealth to jointly produce and post social media cards promoting the Department of Health’s National Vaccine Days (NVD) from November 29-December 01, 2021 and December 15-17, 2021. 

    The social media cards were posted on  platforms such as It’s Okay To Delay, which caters to young adults, and Konektado Tayo, for parents of teens, who are eligible to get vaccinated in the country. Teens got their own messages on the DOH’s platform for teens, I Choose.

    In a little over a week, these platforms reached more than 3 million people — a solid accomplishment given that the messages were focused on reaching rural and peri-urban areas with low vaccine coverage and not major urban cities like Metro Manila. The posts encouraged vaccination and also answered key questions about family planning and vaccination. 

    Working with the DOH in the Philippines, USAID’s Breakthrough ACTION and ReachHealth projects helped raise public awareness through this vaccine promotion initiative. More than 9.9 million people were vaccinated during the National Vaccination Days, helping the government  to fully vaccinate more than 50 million Filipinos by the start of 2022.
