All videos must tag @alcovidvaccine, #getvaccinatedAL and #ADPH. Winners will be determined based on creativity, originality and popularity (likes and shares).

TikTok videos can be submitted between July 16 – August 6, 2021. A panel of judges composed of advertising professionals and ADPH personnel will select 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.The Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine is authorized for most people age 12 and older.
