Mission #11: Gen Z Vax Fax

Meme culture, absurdity + humor. The Gen Z campaign merges straight-forward, credible information with a bold, colorful + entertaining vibe that makes it easier + more enticing for young adults (18-25) to get vaccinated against COVID. By doing so, they can protect the (pre-pandemic) moments they care about.

🚀 Help get this into the hands + social streams of Virginia's Gen Z + young adults
