Get your students involved!

Encourage your students to enter a fun poster and video contest to raise vaccine awareness!

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 the 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 
  • Flu
