It was a pleasure to work with Public Health England on this video to help explain the importance of the NHS shingles vaccine and increase its uptake amongst the elderly.
We had also timed the video to be released on European Immunisation Week (EIW) which promotes the core message that immunisation is vital to prevent diseases and protect life. Their slogan for the campaign– Prevent. Protect. Immunise. -Carries this message across the Region. EIW 2018 will be celebrated on 23–29 April 2018.
Thank you to all the organisations who helped promote the video, it performed really well and hopefully will have a positive impact by increasing the shingles vaccine uptake. Here are a few of the organisations who helped support and promote the video,
