COVID-19 Vaccine Communications Videos, Images and Resources
The people working in hospitals and health systems are trusted sources of information. Answering questions, sharing personal reasons for getting vaccinated, and respecting concerns of those not yet ready to get their vaccine are all powerful ways the health care field can help their communities stay healthy.
Recent polling indicates half of adults intend to get an annual COVID-19 booster if available. Below are resources to help the health care field support COVID and other vaccination efforts.

Nearly four in 10 say their households were sick with COVID-19, RSV or the flu during the winter holidays, and pediatric hospitals were overwhelmed. Vaccines and boosters are safe and effective and can help protect against severe illness and help keep kids out of the hospital. Learn more on our Vaccine Answers page: https://www.aha.org/vaccine
COVID-19 Vaccine Education Resources
The AHA created two posters highlighting the long history of vaccines. From the first vaccine developed in 1796 against smallpox to the latest COVID-19 vaccine, vaccines have reduced the burden of disease as well as the associated mortality and morbidity. Hospitals are encouraged to display the posters in patient waiting areas and exam rooms and use them in digital communications. These infographics, available in English and in Spanish, are part of AHA’s continuing effort to encourage vaccine confidence.
