How many messages will I receive?

We'll send you 2-3 messages a week with helpful tips to keep you well.

What kinds of messages will I receive?

We try to send messages based on your needs. To do this, we ask you to provide us with a little information about yourself when you sign up, including your:

  • gender
  • age
  • role
  • zip code

This information helps us to send messages that are tailored to you. For instance, if there's an emergency in your area, we can send an alert to subscribers in your zip code. If we know your gender, we can send you messages about women's health or about men's health, etc. We use this information to relevant send messages about staying healthy.

Is there a cost?

Although CDC does not charge to participate in this program, standard text messaging rates from your wireless carrier may apply.

How do I opt out?

Although we'd hate to lose you, you can opt out at any time by sending a reply with the word STOP in the body of the message.
