Toronto Is Setting Up Selfie Stations To Encourage People To Get Vaccinated
When it's finally time to get your COVID-19 vaccine, don't forget to bring your phone.
The City of Toronto has announced that it will be installing selfie stations at vaccine clinics across the 6ix.
According to the Toronto Public Health Playbook for the COVID-19 Vaccination Program, these stations will be set up near the exits of the clinics.
After getting a dose, residents will be encouraged to share their selfies on social media to help curb vaccine hesitancy.
"The selfie-station idea is simply an extension of celebrating the fact that the end is near, while, perhaps, encouraging others who may be hesitant to also get vaccinated," Brad Ross, Chief Communications Officer told Narcity.
On top of that, residents will also be able to apply a pink band-aid to their social media profiles after they've been vaccinated.
Pink band-aid stickers will also reportedly be handed out to those who attend the clinics.
"At immunization clinics, there will be an opportunity for individuals to apply a pink band aid to their social media avatar once they have been vaccinated, and the City is working to provide a sticker of a pink band aid to vaccine recipients," states the playbook.
The general public is expected to start getting vaccinated in August 2021.
