Bilingual campaign empowers parents and providers with the power to protect.
Despite effectively preventing outbreaks and nearly eradicating a long list of dangerous diseases, misinformation about the safety of vaccines has proliferated via social media, causing an alarming drop in vaccination rates. Meanwhile, outbreaks in other parts of the country demonstrated the urgent need to address what is fast becoming a public health crisis. Florida Department of Health contracted Brunet-García to develop a bilingual public information campaign, targeting parents and health care professionals alike, to help turn the tide and raise the vaccination rate in Florida.

Moving the needle.

The campaign’s goal of increasing the percentage of fully vaccinated 2-year-olds, adolescents, and pregnant women required a robust, multi-channel bilingual media strategy. Our media mix focused heavily on TV and video ads with a significant emphasis on digital display, radio and digital audio complemented by social, search, print and YouTube advertising. Powered primarily by video placements, the benchmark-breaking results speak for themselves!

Protection for a lifetime.

Our fifth year of the campaign was a reminder of the importance of early vaccination for lifelong protection. We brought this idea to life by revisiting our initial talent from the campaign. By capturing the passage of time—from new babies to new life stages—we demonstrated lasting protection.


The combination of new photography and familiar brand elements created a natural evolution for the campaign.
