NAM Campaign Counters Vaccine Hesitancy

Widespread vaccination is the way to get back to work

Responding to a sobering new milestone of 100 million COVID-19 cases worldwide, the National Association of Manufacturers (NAM) and the Manufacturing Institute—NAM’s workforce development and education partner—are launching a new project aiming to stop the virus in its tracks by convincing more Americans to receive the COVID-19 vaccine.

“One hundred million people have now been impacted by this horrible disease. Asking all Americans to roll up their sleeves and get vaccinated against COVID-19 is a pivotal step toward stopping this upward trend, putting millions of people back to work, and eradicating this virus,” said NAM President and CEO Jay Timmons in a press release.

The project, “This Is Our Shot,” seeks to boost COVID-19 vaccine acceptance among manufacturing team members, their families and their communities through a multifaceted national campaign. A staggering statistic of 100 million cases worldwide and a virus that is mutating means the country’s response and recovery are essential, NAM says. The project corresponds to the organization’s nearly year-long campaign urging Americans to follow Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidelines, such as wearing a mask and social distancing.
