WhatsApp has released a new set of stickers in partnership with the World Health Organization (WHO) called “Vaccines for All”. This was done to raise awareness of the ongoing COVID-19 vaccination campaign in the country and to appreciate the efforts of health workers.
The new “Vaccines for All” stickers launched by WhatApp are a collection of 23 distinct and unique stickers. The stickers have been made available to all WhatsApp users including Android and iPhone users.
These stickers provide a fun and creative way for people to connect and privately express the feeling of joy, relief and hope after sharing information related to COVID-19 vaccines.
Digital Channels, Andy Pattison, WHO team leader, said the launch of the new sticker is trying to encourage more people to get vaccinated against the disease.
COVID-19 helplines created on WhatsApp have also started offering information on vaccines and registration.
“We want to help governments and international organizations connect as many people around the world as possible to vaccine information and services, especially those in hard-to-reach places or in marginalized groups. We’ve also waived the fees for sending messages through our WhatsApp Business API, ”WhatsApp said in its statement.
