Vaccinate Alabama TikTok Contest

To promote vaccination, the Alabama Department of Public Health (ADPH) sponsored a TikTok contest for persons between the ages of 13 and 29 to encourage vaccination against COVID-19 before the beginning of the school year.

To participate, contestants submitted a TikTok video showing themselves getting vaccinated or included a creative message explaining, "This is why I got vaccinated.” All videos tagged @alcovidvaccine, #getvaccinatedAL and #ADPH. Winners were determined based on creativity, originality and popularity (likes and shares). TikTok videos were submitted between July 16 – August 6, 2021.

A panel of judges composed of advertising professionals and ADPH personnel selected four winners who will each be awarded a $250 Visa gift card. Winners will be announced August 13 via the @alcovidvaccine TikTok account, and promoted on ADPH social media.

Vaccination is important in protecting adolescents and others against symptomatic COVID-19 disease. The Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine is authorized for most people age 12 and older. Parental or guardian consent must be obtained for any person younger than age 19 receiving a COVID-19 vaccination from an ADPH vaccination location.
