#jabathon - social media overlay

About the flu #jabathon - Starts 28th October

As part of our efforts to encourage frontline health and social care workers to get their flu jab as early as possible this year, we are encouraging NHS Trusts and health and social care settings to take part in #jabathon  commencing 28th October.

The purpose of the #jabathon week is to provide an opportunity for health and social care staff to encourage each other to make time to get their jab and to highlight why this is so important.

The Jabathon starts 28th October to encourage health and social care workers to get the jab early before flu starts to circulate.

How to get involved

Employers and frontline health and social care workers are encouraged to share photos, videos and other social media content showing themselves getting their jab accompanied by reminders of why this is so important.

We are requesting that posts include #jabathon to bring everyone’s efforts together and to share the wide range of activity across the country to encourage staff to get their jab.

We have provided three versions with the hashtag copy in alternative colours to allow for light/dark backgrounds. It has been provided as a PNG which should be the simplest format for people to drop onto their images. #jabathon provides an opportunity to highlight the importance of getting the flu jab, encouraging people to take it up and showing appreciation for those that have.

Here's how to use the overlays:

  • Open PowerPoint and copy your image (e.g. photo of yourself getting your flu jab) into a blank Powerpoint slide.
  • Copy and paste the social overlay into the same slide.
  • Position and resize the overlay as desired - please DON'T stretch the logo out of shape (i.e. keep it the same aspect ratio).
  • Select both the image and the overlay, right click and ‘group’ the items.
  • Right click on the image to ‘save as picture’.
  • Upload the picture to social media as you normally would – with text saying why you get your flu jab.
  • Share as far and wide as you can to health and social care colleagues to let them know how important it is.
