The Asian American Advertising Federation (3AF) has partnered with the Ad Council and the COVID Collaborative to create an innovative, new campaign aimed at educating Asian Americans with “information and resources they need to make informed decisions about getting vaccinated against COVID-19,” stated the news release. Launching this week exclusively on Asian media in the US will develop and produce “culturally relevant, in-language” content.
As part of the Ad Council and COVID Collaborative’s COVID-19 Vaccine Education Initiative and the “It’s Up to You” campaign, :30 and :60 second spots have been created in multiple languages (English, Korean, Filipino/Tagalog, Hindi, Hmong, Vietnamese, Cantonese, and Mandarin) to provide information on vaccine eligibility and availability, efficacy, and safety.
As stated in the news release, “Indrajit Majumdar, 3AF President, said, ‘At 3AF, we believe in the power of Asian American media. They are a critical conduit to our Asian American community. [After all], they know best how to reach their viewers, listeners, subscribers, and readers. What better way to produce targeted campaigns to reach the various Asian segments on this incredibly important vaccine initiative than using the expertise and the voice of Asian media? It was a great, strategic collaboration with our friends at the Ad Council, COVID Collaborative and our media members, and we look forward to future efforts.’”
