Social Media RFP Issued By American Academy of Pediatrics
AAP seeks an agency to identify and connect with social media influencers who have reach to families of varying socio-economic status, ethnicity, and race with messages about the importance and benefits of childhood and adolescent immunizations. During the pandemic, immunization rates for many routine childhood immunizations have dropped as families have delayed health care. While a COVID-19 vaccine may not be available for many children until later in 2021, AAP is advocating for families to ensure their children are up-to-date on other vaccines to prevent serious illnesses. The influencer marketing agency will support this work through the identification and engagement of those influencers and execution of a social media campaign and associated evaluation.
The American Academy of Pediatrics is a professional membership organization of 67,000 pediatricians committed to the optimal physical, mental, and social health and well-being for all infants, children, adolescents and young adults. Founded in 1930, the AAP advocates for the health and wellbeing of all children and works with government, communities and other national organizations to shape many child health and safety issues. The AAP provides professional education and resources to member pediatricians, and provides patient education and public information campaigns.
