Community Stories: Share Yours

Share your vaccination story or selfie using the hashtag #VaxUpWestchester, and we may feature you here and on our social media. Let's get our communities vaccinated!

What's your vaccination story? Share with us in words, in photos, in video why you value vaccination for yourself, your family and your community. Simply post your story wherever you are on social media (YouTube, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, etc.) using hashtag #VaxUpWestchester. You can take a selfie with your vaccine sticker/immunization card, write your personal vaccine story, record your message on Zoom, have a friend film you with your phone; we're not looking for fancy production here just real, compelling testimonials from our communities about why it's so important we all take this next step toward normal. And make sure to sign off by encouraging everyone to "VaxUpWestchester"! Feel free to add additional hashtags representing where you live, i.e. #Greenburgh, #SleepyHollow, etc. We can't wait to hear from you.
