WhatsApp today launched a new sticker pack, dubbed "Vaccines for All," in collaboration with the World Health Organization, or WHO. The company is doing this to help users share their vaccine experiences with fun-looking stickers and is likely hoping to encourage vaccine uptake.
In 2020, WhatsApp also launched a new "Together at Home" sticker pack, also in partnership with the WHO in an attempt to help people stay connected as lockdowns started. This new pack is a reflection of the current stage of the pandemic.
WhatsApp also spoke a bit more about its work with public health organizations which began in earnest last year.
Writing in a blog post, WhatsApp said:
WhatsApp adds that it'll now be waiving any fees incurred under the WhatsApp Business API to help such organizations connect to more and more people.
