OSMH releases series of promotional COVID vaccine videos

Trio of YouTube videos originally intended for internal use only

Orillia Soldiers’ Memorial Hospital (OSMH) is out with a series of videos touting the safety and effectiveness of COVID-19 vaccines in an effort to boost immunization rates.

Three videos have been posted, each about 10 minutes long, by staff at OSMH. One focuses on the overall benefits of getting the shot, another provides information for those who are pregnant or planning to be, and the third discusses the science behind these vaccines. The videos can be viewed in full on this page.

“I’m extremely proud of our credentialed staff group for the leadership and example they continually set for the hospital and the community,” said Dr. Nancy Merrow, OSMH Chief of Staff. “Originally, these videos were created for internal use, but the messages are so powerful and have been so well received, we decided to share with the community.”

100% of active, credentialed staff at OSMH are compliant with the hospital’s vaccination policy that requires mandatory vaccination unless otherwise exempt.
