Tdap, COVID, and Flu Campaign

ACNM is excited to share a new maternal immunization campaign developed in 2022, encouraging pregnant people to get three essential vaccines: Tdap, COVID and flu using neuroscience to optimize marketing effectiveness.

In a world where misinformation is commonplace and where deliberate disinformation campaigns are on the rise, it can be very difficult for people to discern a true threat from important information for their health and well-being. This new campaign uses effective messaging for help empower people to make informed decisions regarding their health.
