Improving COVID-19 Vaccine Intent Through Better Communication

Melinda Jennings

With COVID-19 infection rates still high in some South-East Asian countries, including a concerning recent spike in the Philippines, ensuring high levels of trust in the vaccine is a must. Navigating challenges around intention to receive the vaccination, while still trying to lower infection rates and organise a comprehensive rollout, remains a key challenge for local governments.

Utilising multi-channel communication to tackle non-intent

Effectively communicating with those who have high levels of mistrust in the COVID-19 vaccine is possible through multi-channel communication. Utilising SMS, mobile-friendly web pages, voice messaging, emails, and more, local governments can make sure the right messages are going to the right people at the right time.

Diversifying the way in which communications are sent out means that citizens are reached on the platforms they use. Rich messages and landing pages are also critical in reflecting and resonating with all communities.
