HOUSTON – With COVID-19 cases on the rise, state health officials are starting to target young people in a new campaign promoting vaccination.

The campaign will launch with a pop-up event at the Walmart on the North Freeway and Crosstimbers and will be from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m.

Officials with the Texas Department of State Health Services will “talk with parents and families about the importance of vaccination for younger Texans as they prepare for the next school year and as the Delta variant spreads more widely in Texas.”

The new campaign also included ads that will address the safety of the COVID-19 vaccine and the importance for children to get it.
