ORLANDO, Fla - Florida A&M University (FAMU) is partnering with the Florida Department of Health to spread the COVID-19 vaccination message to underserved communities. 

Digital billboards along I-4 are spreading the message for people to get vaccinated for protection against COVID-19. The billboards come at a time when Orlando is considered by the Centers for Disease and Prevention to have a high COVID-19 community level.

“Digital messaging is so important in our statewide outreach,” said Dr. Cynthia M. Harris, FAMU associate dean of Public Health. “Through the fiscal support of the Florida Department of Health, our community engagement activities and the hard work of our FAMU College of Law, we are able to effectively spread the importance of the COVID-19 vaccination – particularly in underserved communities.”

The billboards are in English and Spanish and encourage people to protect themselves by getting vaccinated.
