MDHHS: #MIHeroForHealth Campaign

The focus of this campaign is to promote the importance of vaccination and especially getting caught up on doses that may have been missed due to COVID-19. Join us in sharing this message by using the social media hashtag #MIHeroForHealth, which emphasizes the fact that vaccination allows us to be a hero not only for our health but for the health of our Michigan communities. We all play a role in being a hero for health – from the healthcare provider taking measures to keep you safe for vaccine visits, to the family getting vaccinated to protect against vaccine-preventable disease and outbreaks. Be a hero – vaccinate.
