"Nikki Sengupta from the Indigenous Primary Health Care Council talks about a youth-led vaccine advocacy campaign.  Youth ambassador Dakota Boyer participated in the project and shares her ideas on making projects youth-led. #SmudgeCovid #4MyRelations #indigenousyouth4vaccines is a social media campaign on Twitter, Instagram, and Tiktok that aims to increase knowledge and understanding of vaccines, build vaccine confidence and reduce hesitancy among Indigenous youth from 15-24 years old. The project is funded by the National Reconciliation Program of Save the Children Canada." - Dalla Lana School of Public Health
