Make a Difference

The only way we can get back to the people and activities we enjoy is by getting vaccinated. Many young people are still not vaccinated even though they are eligible. You can be part of the solution.

Unleash your creativity by creating a video that addresses misinformation and encourages youth to get vaccinated against COVID-19.

Winning videos will be highlighted on the Public Health Department’s social media channels that reach hundreds of thousands of people.
