Get Out the Vax
In the month leading up to July 4th, National Council of Jewish Women, in partnership with the Made to Save coalition and Health and Human Services’ We Can Do This campaign, is launching a month-long mobilization to ensure 70% of adults are at least partially vaccinated by July 4th. So take your Get Out the Vote skills and apply them to Get Out the Vax by phone banking, canvassing, and tabling.
The majority of adults in every demographic want to be vaccinated, but we still haven’t reached herd immunity in this country. People still need information on where to get a vaccine, how to sign up, and how to get there.
We can help!
NCJW mobilized more than 40,000 people to get registered to vote and make a voting plan. Let’s take the same skills and strategies we used to Get Out the Vote and apply it to Get Out the Vax. With herd immunity, we can spend time with our loved ones in person, return to work, and enjoy life without COVID-related restrictions.
From June 4 to July 4, we are asking NCJW advocates, volunteers, and sections to commit to taking at least one of the following actions:
Get Out The Vax on Social Media
Let folks know the basics of how to get vaccinated. The more people who see you care about this, the better! Individuals are more likely to get vaccinated when they know their friends and trusted community leaders are getting vaccinated. We will provide sample graphics and posts.
Get Out the Vax by Phone & Text Banking
If you have a phone, enjoy talking to or texting people, and want to help get vaccine information out to folks who might not have it, this is for you! Join a national phone banking opportunity on Sunday, June 6 from 5-30-7:30pm ET (as part of the kick off Weekend of Action) or on Thursday, June 10th from 6:00-8:00 PM ET. Or sign up for a Phone and Text Bank training from our partners at Made To Save, grab a phone, and get started. Consider setting a goal of at least 18 phone calls or texts. You can do this on your own or with your family or a group of friends. We will provide scripts and phone numbers.
Get Out the Vax by Canvassing your Neighborhood
Grab a friend and a clipboard (to look official), and walk around your community door-to-door to talk to people about the COVID-19 vaccines to ensure everyone has the information they need to get vaccinated. We will provide scripts and safety guidelines you can use!
Get Out the Vax by Tabling
Get a permit to sit outside a local grocery store, vaccination sites, or any other high-traffic area to ensure everyone has the information they need to get vaccinated. We will provide talking points and printable banners and signs to decorate your station. This is a perfect event for a Section that can help advocates take shifts at the station throughout the day.
Sign our Pledge
NCJW calls on you to embody pikuach nefesh and pledge to get vaccinated and help others get vaccinated, so no one is left behind. Will you sign on? Share the pledge on social media! Tag us @NCJW on Twitter, @NCJWInc on Facebook, and @NCJWInc on Instagram and use the hashtags #IPledged #GetOutTheVax

Our goal is to help our country reach 70% herd immunity by at least getting one vaccination shot by July 4, 2021.
