BURLINGTON, Vt. (WCAX) - The Vermont Health Department is launching a new outreach series for Vermonters to share what getting vaccinated against COVID-19 means to them.

The Health Department says it’s part of the state’s increasing efforts to encourage people to get their vaccine. The series features Vermonters sharing how getting the shot has impacted their lives.

The new series can be viewed on the department’s YouTube channel and will be seen on TV, streaming services, radio, social media, newspapers and more.

The Health Department opened the contest in April asking people to submit videos, photos or written thoughts.

Some of the submissions will be featured in the new campaign. One lucky winner received a $500 prize.
