The Jefferson County Department of Health (JCDH) is
hosting a county-wide TikTok Competition to encourage all residents to get the COVID-19 vaccine. The Tiktok competition comes in part of JCDH kicking off its new campaign called “Let’s Kick COVID Together.” As COVID-19 cases continue to rise in the state, JCDH wants to make a creative effort to get everyone excited about getting the vaccine. Any resident of Jefferson County can participate. The competition kicks off on October4,2021, and will
last until December3,2021. The best TikTok video will receive a grand prize of swag gear and football tickets to big games such as the Magic City Classic and the Iron Bowl! JCDH will announce bi-monthly winners during the competition.

“This competition will allow residents to change the narrative of receiving the COVID-19 vaccine. Social media has a great way to influence and engage with communities. It is important for us at JCDH to bring awareness to the importance of receiving the vaccine. As COVID-19 cases rise, we are doing our part to get as many people vaccinated as possible to have a safer Jefferson County. ”Dr. Mark E. Wilson, Health Officer

For one to enter, they must create a video and upload it to TikTok. Residents can get creative to show why getting the COVID-19 vaccination and practicing safety precautions is essential. Make sure to tag @jeffcodepthealth on TikTok in the caption of your video to be entered in the competition.
In addition, the JCDH page will feature the TikTok videos.


If you’ve tested positive for COVID-19, one of the first questions you may have is, What can I do to reduce the risk of getting sicker? The good news is, there are treatments that may reduce that risk. Depending on your age, health history, and how long you’ve had symptoms of COVID-19, you may qualify for a promising form of treatment for the disease. It’s called monoclonal antibody (mAb) treatment.

If given early to higher risk people, monoclonal antibody treatment can reduce the amount of coronavirus in your body decreasing the likelihood you would need to be hospitalized.

Jefferson County Department of Health is celebrating National Dental Hygiene Month in October. Oral health is essential for not just smiling, speaking, and chewing, but to general health and well-being.

By age one, infants should have their first dental exam for early problem detection and important oral health education that will benefit the entire family.

JCDH reminds you to brush twice daily, floss at least once a day, and choose a well-balanced, healthy diet, minimizing sugary foods and drinks.

Each of our three dental clinics accepts patients aged 20 and under. We accept Medicaid and Allkids and treat non-insured Jefferson County residents who meet age restrictions and federal poverty guidelines. Please call 205-588-5234 for more information.
