#ThisIsOurShot aims to dispel misinformation on social media and lead by example.
OREGON, USA — Some doctors say vaccine hesitancy could be a barrier for communities to return to “normal” life after the COVID-19 pandemic, so one group is spearheading an independent social media campaign to fight misinformation.
The campaign is called #ThisIsOurShot.
Doctors and medical professionals around the country have used the hashtag to post pictures of themselves getting vaccinated.
Dr. Robyn Liu works in Portland and received her COVID vaccine in December 2020. She joined the social media movement, knowing not everyone is comfortable with getting the shot.
“There’s no getting back to that kind of a [normal] life unless the vaccinations are as widespread as possible,” Liu said.
