TikTok announces its collaboration with SG Government, under the Ministry of Communications and Information (MCI), to bring the national #IGotMyShotSG campaign targeted at youths and young adults onto its platform, to encourage users in Singapore to get vaccinated against COVID-19.
The partnership is part of the platform’s TikTok for Good efforts in support of Singapore’s nationwide vaccination drive, and to provide a safe online space for users to gather trusted information about the nationwide COVID-19 vaccination programme.
TikTok is encouraging its community in Singapore to take a shot at becoming a ‘COVID SLAYER’ with the government’s vaccine education campaign, #IGotMyShotSG.
The SG government website has also introduced its first-ever Gamified Branded Effect, where users can have fun challenging other users to determine the best ‘COVID SLAYER’. The game also creatively weaved in bite-sized vaccine-related facts to encourage users to get vaccinated. This Gamified Branded Effect is available on the TikTok trending effects panel, where users can find a range of effects to inspire their creativity as they share their personal vaccination experiences.
Users can participate using the hashtag #IGotMyShotSG and view vaccine-related videos from the broader TikTok community on the app’s Discover page.
This not only fosters a sense of community through shared COVID-19 vaccination experiences, but also addresses users’ questions around COVID-19 vaccines.
