Promoting Vaccines through positive stories
#WhatsYourWhy Video Series
#whatsyourwhy video series represents a series of videos created by youth from various multicultural communities in Australia. The youth through the videos have shared their stories on why they have taken the vaccine and accordingly motivate the audiences to their theirs too. Each of the video submitted by our youth was approximately 30 minutes. The above video represents a compilation of many such videos to reflect on the stories of vaccines from our youth.
Since, the onset of COVID-19, the youth have been through a lot of struggles that included losing jobs, physical contact, distance from family members and friends and many others. The #whatsyourwhy posters, similar to the #whatsyourwhy videos are a compilation of the reasons on how to vaccines helped the youth get back to normal and reconnect with their loved ones.
The consultations conducted among youth from CALD identified the persistence of vaccine myths as major barriers to vaccine intake. In response to the barrier, MYAN developed the myth buster videos and posts to inform the audiences of the facts. Various types of mythbuster posts were created.
