The Illinois state government is launching a vaccination awareness campaign for the holidays. Children ages 5 and older are now eligible for the vaccine.
The campaign, titled “The Greatest Gift You Can Give," consists of five videos that will be distributed throughout Illinois via various media outlets in English and Spanish.
It is part of the state’s larger “All In For the Win” campaign.
Gov. JB Pritzker described the vaccine as lifesaving and the greatest gift people can give this holiday season. He explained that as a parent, the vaccine has given him peace of mind that his children are safe from COVID-19.
The campaign is backed by the Illinois Department of Public Health as well as other doctors and public health experts.
All costs are reimbursable by the federal government.
