What is Protect Me With 3+?

Adolescent vaccinations can prevent disease and save lives.

Protect Me With 3+ is an annual poster and video contest, and a collaboration between The Partnership for Maternal and Child Health of Northern New Jersey and the New Jersey Department of Health. We believe your health is worth a shot.

Targeting youth in middle and high schools, the contest aims to raise awareness about the importance of adolescent immunizations among pre-teens, teenagers and parents, and increase vaccination rates for several important vaccines:

  • Tetanus, Diphtheria, Pertussis (Tdap)
  • Human Papillomavirus (HPV)
  • Meningococcal Conjugate
  • Flu

Participating is as easy as 1-2-3!
