Facebook appeal creates 12,000 more signatures

Yesterday we submitted nearly 12,000 Emergency Vaccine Petition signatures to the Department of Health. That’s 12,000 more voices telling Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt to use his powers to save lives by ensuring negotiations are completed before 26th March.

In the past we empowered our supporters to capture signatures in the traditional way, with pen and paper + an online form. This time we used Facebook only and the power of our 48,000 strong community. Within two weeks we had gathered all 12,000. And because it was all digital, all the data was simple to download and manage. No time consuming manual keying in.

And now the Government has another 12,000 reasons to introduce the vaccine.
