COVID-19 vaccination communication 

Learn. Understand. Decide. This creative campaign increases the feeling of confidence in the COVID-19 vaccination and acknowledges the need for people to understand the facts before making a decision. Communication informs and addresses misconceptions, to help encourage people to make decisions that are right for them—and their communities.

Through this turnkey program, members have easy access to a catalog of communication pieces. Templates are available as a downloadable PDF, for print materials and can be customized using Adobe Acrobat Pro, saving time, effort and cost when developing new communication materials. 

Software Requirements for Template Customization: 

Adobe Acrobat Pro should be used to add your organization’s logo and customized text to the file. The toolkit tactics have been built using the Forms functionality in Adobe Acrobat Pro to offer customization of the PDF templates. The Edit Forms feature of Acrobat should meet most or all of your customization needs. However, if you need to make additional changes, refer to Adobe’s documentation. Helvetica Neue, Light is the selected font used in the template designs. Acrobat should retain this font when customizing your files.

  2. In the top navigation, select File > Open …
  3. Select your PDF toolkit template file from the document window
