Main Street One’s partnership with Oregon Health Authority was recently featured by Fox12 Oregon for our work combating vaccine hesitancy. Using the #MyVaccineReason, Main Street One and Oregon Health Authority are sourcing stories from local residents and business owners who share why they have got, or are eager to get, the COVID-19 vaccine.

One Oregon micro-influencer described why she felt it was important to participate in the campaign. 

“I think the small accounts, small micro-influencers like myself, really carry a lot of weight in our community because we have such an investment with our followers. You know, they know our story, we know them,” said Lyndsay Maderis, the owner of a Portland Pearl District hair salon, Thairapy PDX. 

“I am very pro-vaccination. I’m so excited that we can start to resume some life as normal, and if I can influence people and let them know that this is an exciting moment in our time, then why wouldn’t I?”
