Franklin County Public Health Launches COVID-19 Vaccine Ambassador Program

The agency is laser-focused on efforts to get the county better vaccinated

Franklin County Public Health is laser-focused on its efforts to get the county better vaccinated against COVID-19, and for its next push, it's calling on the community with its ambassador program, training them to be the group's newest, trusted messengers.

The ambassador program, which officially launched in July and is coordinated by communication specialist Tessa Gatz, equips participants with the training and tools needed to encourage peers to get vaccinated.

The effort is an attempt to meet people, primarily those in vulnerable communities, at the ground level–instead of hearing vaccine advice from officials, the community can hear it from their neighbors, friends, social groups and more.
