Watch for the Houston Health Department’s Take Your Best Shot PSA Series

The City of Houston Health Department (HHD) is encouraging Houstonians to protect themselves and prevent the spread of COVID-19 by getting vaccinated when a vaccine is available. The “Take Your Best Shot” campaign is a direct outreach to those most heavily impacted by COVID-19 -- communities of color, seniors age 64 and older, people with underlying health conditions, health care workers and first responders.

Although the HHD’s primary message is about the need to get vaccinated, the campaign also urges everyone to adopt a sense of personal responsibility to get vaccinated in order to protect themselves and others and help prevent the spread of COVID-19, so that the city and society as a whole can return to a sense of normalcy.
