YouTube teams up with NHS to encourage young people to get Covid jab

The Government has set a target of offering a first dose to every UK adult by the end of July

A campaign to encourage young people to get their Covid jab when they become eligible has been launched by YouTube in collaboration with the NHS.

The online platform says it can help the health service reach this audience, with 98% of 18-34 year olds in the UK using YouTube each month.

The campaign, with the tagline Let’s Not Go Back, will run on the video platform as well as in the national press, on billboards, bus stop advertising, and on social media.

Dr Nikki Kanani, medical director of primary care for NHS England, welcomed the support of such platforms to spread the message that coronavirus vaccines are safe.

She said: “We want to make sure that everyone, including in younger generations, have any barriers removed that may stop them from taking the vaccine when offered, so it is great to have support from platforms such as YouTube, to reassure people that the vaccine is safe, simple and effective.

“NHS staff have pulled out all the stops to deliver the success of the vaccine programme so far, and I urge everyone to book in for a vaccine when you are eligible.”
