Long Term Care Voices for Vaccination

MHCA has launched a paid, targeted social media advertising campaign featuring the following long term care residents and employees who share why they chose to get vaccinated against COVID-19. These short videos, around one minute or less, will run on Facebook and Instagram until October 29th. Using the state's vaccination dashboard, MHCA specifically targeted areas of the state in which there are lower staff vaccination rates. We are also sharing them on our FaceBook page and providing them to members to use for organic reach.

We thank the following residents from 75 State Street and employees from Gorham House, The Lamp Memory Care, Island Nursing Home, Barron Center for sharing their voices and supporting COVID-19 vaccination efforts statewide. Their words are compelling. We encourage you to share them far and wide!
