Hey South Florida — it’s time to get the facts about the COVID-19 vaccine.

We know there’s a lot of information—and disinformation!—circulating out there. And while it’s smart to ask questions, and even to be a little skeptical, making sure you get answers from a reliable source has never been more important.

Yes, COVID-19 cases in the US have dramatically decreased, but the number of daily deaths due to the virus still remains in the hundreds—and nearly all have occurred in people who were unvaccinated. Now, a more transmissible, deadlier variant (called delta) is causing cases to surge in cities across the country. Now is the time to be vaccinated if you haven’t yet been!

Scroll down for answers to some of the most pressing COVID-19 vaccine questions, which we culled from medical experts right here in our South Florida community. Plus, hear from real people who’ve been vaccinated and said I DID IT!”

How they did it!

The I Did It campaign is supported by partners and organizations across South Florida.
Here are a few examples of how they’ve adapted the campaign, run with it and inspired others to say I Did It too.

MEMORIAL HEALTH SYSTEM

Memorial Health System created I Did It videos of their own, to encourage their workforce 11,000 to get vaccinated. They also created posters, signs and emails that were used across the health system by leaders and employees alike.

MIAMI-DADE PARKS & ZOO MIAMI

Our fur friends who live Zoo Miami—and the genius human who take such good care—worked with Miami-Dade Parks to create a vaccine video too. See how a cheetah and an elephant get their regular shots while encouraging the rest of us to step up and get our vaccines too.

UNIVISION

Watch as beloved Univision 23 host Javier Romero shares on Instagram why he said I Did It.

HOT 105

Radio host Supa Cindy was all about letting the community know how important the vaccine is — and wasn’t shy about sharing her own I Did It moment on her Facebook page. Check out her post here.

FLORIDA INTERNATIONAL UNIVERSITY

Check out how our friends at FIU brought to life the campaign with students and athletes—and lots of Panther Pride.
