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.
Some of the stories people shared on our #VaxChamp page were so compelling that the FNHA reached out to learn more from them. You can read those stories on our website:
