    • Set the record straight – say no to misinformation!
    • Why does it matter?
    • What do people need to know so they can get their shot?
    The Grand Prize is a choice of Nintendo Switch, Chromebook or an approved prize of choice up to $350 in value. The Runner-Up prize is a choice of AirPods, Fitbit or an approved prize of choice up to $150 in value.

    All entries must use the hashtag #VaxTruthChallenge in the video description and be shared on Tiktok, Instagram, Facebook, OR YouTube. The deadline for entry is May 17, 2021. All entries with #VaxTruthChallenge will be reviewed to ensure the applicants and videos meet the basic eligibility criteria and guidelines on accuracy.

    Winners must be a resident of Pima County and no older than 24 years at the time of submission. Winners must agree to allow Pima County to use their video on other outlets. More details on judging, vaccine information, and vaccine locations are available at VaxChallenge.com.

    “We have come so far in our battle against COVID-19,” said Dr. Theresa Cullen, Pima County Health Department director. “We are excited and eager to engage with and vaccinate young adults to continue our march to herd immunity and get back to the things we love in life. We know that peer influence is significant for this age group and the #VaxTruthChallenge encourages people to share their experiences.”
