Statewide Day of Action | Mission Details

Hello + welcome to our 6th collective mission!

⛑️ How to support: Choose any or all 3 of the mission actions to support the "It’s Our Shot, Virginia: Statewide Day of Action."

Research shows that social norms have a major impact on people’s attitudes + behaviors regarding their health. We know people are more likely to get a vaccine when they see many people they trust are doing it. Whether you say it out loud or through a social media frame/meeting background, announce your vaccination status for all to see.

📲 To be featured in our Mission 6 recap, please provide your feedback + let us know how you share. Your insight + ideas help guide future efforts.

3. CONVERSATION SUPPORT


Once we are vaccinated, the job is not quite over. The mission that continues is to share our stories + encourage others to get their vaccine. Here are four tips to support you while you support others.

  • Remember, it starts today. Continue using these tips for ongoing conversations.

  • Ask honest questions + listen more than talk.

  • Be sincere - both in sharing your reasons for getting vaccinated + your hope for wishing others would as well.

  • Ask permission to share information. You can always offer to follow up with answers to their concerns/questions through CDC, VDH or other trusted sources.
