Be a COVID-19 #VaxChamp

VaxChamp stands for “Vaccine Champion". 

On #VaxChamp, you can post a photo and a message about why you got vaccinated against COVID-19 – you can become a Vaccine Champion.

The goal of #VaxChamp is to provide a culturally safe space where Indigenous people can inspire others by sharing their motivations for getting the vaccine.

The FNHA launched #VaxChamp in 2021 to coincide with the arrival of the first COVID-19 vaccines in First Nations communities in BC. Since that time, hundreds of Indigenous people have gone to #VaxChamp to share their photos and reasons for getting vaccinated. 

Some of the first VaxChamps were doctors from the FNHA Office of the Chief Medical Officer.
