Jakob Metz '11

Jakob Metz '11, a Baltimore-based attorney, and friends from the University of Maryland noticed a concerning amount of hesitation about the new COVID-19 vaccines. So, they decided to create a vehicle for people to show their support for vaccinations. Their website, vaccinepledge.org, allows individuals to sign a pledge to get a COVID-19 vaccine when it is available to them and to share this pledge on social media. Their hope is that when people see family, friends, and neighbors committing to getting vaccinated, they will become more comfortable with the idea themselves. They are also working to compile and share information about COVID-19 vaccines, including interviews with experts explaining the importance of vaccination as well as how to sign up to receive the vaccine in their state. And, they are also selling bright red #vaccinepledge bracelets to help accomplish these goals, with 20% of the proceeds to be donated to organizations supporting COVID-19 relief.
