A New Jersey initiative that rewards public school students with gift cards and cash prizes for creating posters and videos promoting vaccines has drawn flak from critics. They say it is just a thinly veiled attempt to convince young students to create “promotional material on behalf of pharmaceutical interests.”
Brian Hooker, senior director of science and research for the Children’s Health Defense, said teachers are being incentivized to lie while the students are “being incentivized to create a disinformation campaign,” with the ultimate goal of marketing the campaign to an innocent younger demographic.
The campaign “Protect Me With 3+” is sponsored by the New Jersey Department of Health (NJDH). According to the campaign’s guidelines, New Jersey students in grades 5 to 12 “can enter to win great prizes while promoting vaccination.”
According to the website, winners can receive prizes ranging from $50 to $175 gift cards. Meanwhile, teachers whose classes submit the most entries will receive $75 gift card awards.
The website also told interested contestants that by getting vaccinated, “you are protecting yourself and your family and friends.”
It also warned people that not vaccinating a child on time “can make someone else sick, like a friend, baby, adult, grandparent or someone unable to be vaccinated.”
According to the NJDH, the contest for children was allegedly created to “raise awareness of the importance of vaccination” against one of these vaccine-preventable diseases:
- Meningococcal ACWY (MenACWY)
- Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19)
Aside from the contest for public schools, the NJDH has also been promoting its campaign in universities, where students are invited to create content promoting vaccines with the phrase “Step Up! Vax Up!”
The campaign promoted in universities offers a cash prize of $5,000 to the winning entry.
Medical experts raise concerns about involving children in promotion of pharmaceutical products
These taxpayer-funded contests have raised concerns among medical experts, who warned that having children participate in the promotion and marketing of pharmaceutical products “crosses an ethical red line.”
Hooker said there is no rational excuse for the solicitation of minors to promote medical products, especially when it involves vaccines that are often linked to various adverse side effects.

He added that experts are concerned because Big Pharma is using schools to do the marketing and advertising for these large pharmaceutical interests. The move was also slammed because it is “using taxpayer dollars to promote their product.”
Hooker added that many of the winning posters currently being promoted on the contest’s website make false claims about vaccines.
For example, many of the posters promoted on the website include the claim that getting vaccinated prevents the transmission of Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19). However, this has been proven to be false many times.
The winning entry includes a hand-colored poster created by a tenth-grade student. The poster featured a picture of a mask along with the slogan: “Having corona is not a fun persona. Get vaccinated & stay safe.”
In the past two years, the COVID-19 vaccines have become the center of various controversies. The original COVID-19 vaccines were taken by more than 80 percent of Americans after government officials and Big Pharma colluded and promised that the vaccines could effectively prevent contraction and stop the spread of the coronavirus.
However, once it was revealed that the vaccines did not work as initially promised, interest in the subsequent booster shots decreased significantly. The vaccines have also been linked to widespread reports of negative health outcomes.
According to the Food and Drug Administration‘s (FDA) Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) database, COVID-19 vaccines have been named the primary suspect in more than 1.5 million adverse event reports. The actual numbers could be even higher.
Additionally, an FDA-funded study out of Harvard University has revealed that VAERS cases represent fewer than one percent of vaccine adverse events.
Big Pharma using children for blatant propaganda
In a December press release, Mariekarl Vilceus-Talty, president and CEO of the Partnership for Maternal and Child Health of Northern New Jersey (PMCH), which partnered with NJDH for the vaccine promotion project, claimed that the goal in creating the incentive-laden contest was to encourage young people to “become active in their own health and that of their community.”
Vilceus-Talty said the contest aims to use vaccine awareness “to inspire adolescents with an engaging and interactive approach to community health.” She added that student participation was crucial to start the conversation about being healthy in their community and with their peers throughout the school day.
Hooker warned that the only “participation” these public education students are being engaged in is a taxpayer-subsidized “propaganda” campaign to help market and sell a highly profitable pharmaceutical product in a post-pandemic world.
He urged parents to get the school boards involved to help stop the blatant manipulation of innocent children, particularly because students are “too young to make medical decisions for themselves” and advertise for Big Pharma.
