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. (Feedback form is now closed for Mission 6)

1. FACEBOOK FRAMES
🚀 Consider adding one of the Facebook frames to your personal profile picture. Images below are examples of how the frame looks on top of a photo.
1. Select the link beneath your preferred frame.
2. The link will take you to a Facebook page to add the frame to your existing Facebook profile photo.
Note: After completing the above steps, you may also choose to download your new photo with frame from Facebook + add to other social media accounts.
2. VIRTUAL MEETING BACKGROUNDS
🚀 Consider adding one of the backgrounds for your virtual meetings (or use as social media cover photo)

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.
