Apr 22, 2016 Use Federal Zika Dollars to Buy Promotional Insect Repellent
Zika Virus is a real threat and it is being taken very seriously by our government. The Centers For Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Emergency Operations Center (EOC) was activated in late January 2016. On February 8, 2016, the EOC moved a level 1 activation, which is the highest threat level.
Duties of the EOC include developing testing to diagnose Zika, conducting further studies about Zika to learn more about the virus, monitoring and reporting cases of Zika, providing guidelines to citizens and U.S. travelers, and supporting our U.S. territories.
The scale of the Zika response requires coordination between multiple agencies on a local, regional, and national level. It also requires significant funding by the federal government to make it possible to combat the dangers of Zika.
If your local health department or government agency receives federal monies earmarked for Zika awareness, promotional insect repellent containing one of the 4 active recommended ingredients by the CDC is a perfect way to spend some of those Zika dollars.
These useful promos satisfy 2 of the goals for the Zika campaign.
1. They promote awareness about the dangers of Zika Virus.
2. These items actually contain effective insect repellent to prevent Zika.
Awareness and insect repellent containing either IR3535, Deet, Picaridin, OLE, or PMD is the best defense against contracting Zika. That’s why promotional insect repellent is a great fit in the prevention of Zika virus.
