WhatsApp and WHO launch stickers to support Covid vaccination
WHO says that vaccine is a “watershed”, but that people should continue to wear masks, follow social distance, avoid crowds, and other measures to prevent contagion.
WhatsApp and the World Health Organization (WHO) launched on Tuesday (6) a new package of stickers called Vaccines for All (in English).
“We hope that these stickers will offer a fun and creative way to express not only the joy, the relief and the hope with the possibilities brought by the vaccines against Covid-19”, said the application, in a statement.
WhatsApp also has a chatbot in Portuguese, in partnership with the WHO, for information on the coronavirus.
“While vaccines for COVID-19 are distributed worldwide, this new sticker pack aims to encourage their acceptance and represent our hope,” said Andy Pattison, Leader of the WHO Digital Channels team.
“Vaccines are a game changer, but for now, we must continue to wear masks, follow social distance, avoid crowds, ventilate indoor spaces and keep our hands clean.”
