Reno, NV — While working from home has become a reality for many in the face of a global pandemic, wearing stylish jeans (or pants for that matter) may be a distant memory. But now Immunize Nevada is asking Nevadans to dig out their favorite denim for a good cause.
“On August 28th, we’re asking people to denim up in support of vaccines,” explained Immunize Nevada Executive Director Heidi Parker. “To celebrate National Immunization Awareness Month in August, we’re pairing our love for denim with our love for promoting health and preventing disease.”
Chances are, you love have a lot of jeans if you live in Nevada – Levi’s were born in Reno and they are the quintessential uniform of the Wild West.
Anyone can join Immunize Nevada for #Jeans4Vaccines2020 by wearing jeans (or any kind of denim) on Friday, Aug. 28. Much like campaigns that ask people to wear certain colors in support of causes, the goal of Jeans4Vaccines is to unite people through their wearing of denim to help spread the word about the importance of vaccines in protecting health and preventing disease. Then, they can get social by snapping a selfie and tagging @immunizenv with #Jeans4Vaccines2020. Participants can make an even bigger impact by inviting friends, family members and co-workers to join in.
“Hop on a Zoom call with your colleagues or buddies, and snap a pic of everyone donning their denim,” Parker said. “Now more than ever, it’s important to support immunizations and public health.”
Immunize Nevada is widely recognized as Nevada’s trusted resource for immunizations and community health for all ages by fostering education and statewide collaboration. Immunize Nevada’s vision is healthy communities across Nevada protected from a vaccine-preventable disease.
