Display Information via Content Syndication

There are a few simple steps to have CDC’s most up-to-date content on your site, apps, and social media. This service is called ‘content syndication’. Simply place specific code within your online digital and social media tools to display any CDC content including COVID-19 vaccination topics.

Communicate COVID-19 Vaccination Information

Using CDC’s Content Syndication tool you can select any COVID-19 vaccination content from a catalog of choices. It’s easy to select one or more at a time. See exact steps to make this happen.
