Local 10 News has begun producing and airing a series of public service announcements called Get the Facts and Get the Vax.

One fact: Between 98 and 99 percent of Americans dying of COVID-19 are unvaccinated.

The 15-second PSAs will provide helpful information about the impact of COVID-19 and vaccination perceptions. The facts contained in the messages are gathered from reputable sources and attributed accordingly.


We’ve also assembled a list of health organizations and government entities that can help with COVID-19-related questions and inform your decisions about vaccinations.
